ATS Euromaster slashes council callouts

21 September 2015 #Logistics #News #Top Stories

ATS Euromaster claims to have dramatically reduced out-of-hours callouts for Cardiff City Council’s vehicle fleet by 95% in the first year of managing the council’s tyres.

Previously, Cardiff City Council had made 150 out-of-hours calls to replace failed tyres on its fleet of 500 vans and 60 trucks. However, since ATS Euromaster took over tyre management in October 2014, that number has dropped to a claimed average of just eight out-of-hours callouts per year, less than one a month.

ATS Euromaster says it has also substantially cut tyre cost expenditure for the council by driving up the regrooving rate of its truck tyres, extending each tyre’s life by around 25%. Between October 2013 and 2014, 168 tyres were regrooved, compared 688 in the past year.

Richard Jones, Fleet Manager, Cardiff City Council, said, “ATS Euromaster has worked closely with Cardiff Council to successfully deliver significant savings to the overall tyre spend and increased operational efficiencies. They are a solid and reliable supplier, and experts in their field. Their approach to the contract has always been fair, courteous and above all, professional in every respect bringing a high level of value to our end users.”

Peter Fairlie, Group Sales Director at ATS Euromaster, added, “By placing our customer first, we have been able to substantially improve the performance of its fleet while at the same time helping Cardiff City Council save valuable taxpayer cash, which can only be of benefit to residents of the Welsh capital.”

ATS Euromaster has introduced a Michelin-fitment policy since it began working with Cardiff City Council. It also holds coveted approved supplier status to public sector organisations across the UK, as part of a multi-brand tyre supply deal on the Crown Commercial Service framework agreement.
