The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company announced recently it has become the major supplier for both Volvo and Freightliner.

Goodyear was named standard equipment tire supplier for the Volvo Group’s Volvo and Mack truck operations in North America.

Goodyear, with the three-year contracts, will now be a key supplier to the Volvo Group’s three major truck brands – Mack, Renault and Volvo – on three continents. Volvo, headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, is the world’s second largest truck manufacturer.

Freightliner LLC, North America’s largest manufacturer of heavy-duty trucks, has also named Goodyear as its standard tire supplier.

Officials of Goodyear and Freightliner recently signed the agreement, and Freightliner has begun communicating this decision to its network of truck dealers, say company officials.

Goodyear is supplying a variety of truck tires for Freightliner LLC’s various commercial vehicle needs. This includes supply to the company’s commercial vehicle brands Freightliner, Sterling, Western Star, American LaFrance and Thomas Built Buses.
