When it comes to transportation operations, tires are the third largest expense in fleet management. Thus, maximizing the value of each tire asset is crucial in today’s competitive business environment. But for smaller fleets, tire replacement can be a costly and time-consuming process and comes down to buy a new replacement tire or to buy a stock retreaded tire from a reliable source.
Large Fleet Tire Replacement Process
In a large fleet, availability of additional tire stock permits these businesses to cap their own casings. As tread wears, tire assets are strategically moved from steer to drive and then from drive to trailer. When the decision to retread is made, existing inventory can be used as an immediate replacement. Once the worn tire has been retreaded, it can then be rotated back into their stock. This ecofriendly retread process eliminates idle waiting time while avoiding the costly purchase of a new tire.
Small Fleet Tire Retread Challenges
What works for large fleets tire management strategy isn’t necessarily a viable solution for smaller fleets, however. While larger fleets typically have an inventory of owned tires that can be interchanged as worn tires are retreaded, smaller fleets may not have this surplus available to them. When tires are removed for retreading, vehicles sit idle—wait time that is costly to their operations. By implementing a stock retread replacement tire program with Bauer Built, downtime and expense for these smaller businesses can be dramatically reduced.
