AKRON, Ohio — Goodyear has signed a one-year agreement to be the preferred tire supplier for Wabash National Corporation semi-trailers.
The agreement includes using Goodyear Unisteel G316 LHT trailer tires featuring Fuel Max Technology on Wabash Nationals DuraPlate dry van trailer, which recently received certification in the US Environmental Protection Agencys SmartWay Transport Partnership.
Goodyears Fuel Max linehaul tires also have been approved for use on SmartWay tractors and trailers. SmartWay is a voluntary partnership between the freight industry and the EPA to increase energy efficiency and emissions reductions.
Mark Totten, general manager for Goodyear original-equipment commercial tires, said, We are extremely pleased to have been chosen by Wabash National to supply tires for its lines of trailers. Together, Wabash National and Goodyear will provide fleet customers with fuel saving technologies that enhance the performance of their trailers.
In addition, Goodyear commercial tires provide long mileage and retreadability for enhanced cost per mile and lower overall operating costs, Totten said.
