Trucking Fleet Services
Drive the costs out of your tire program.
Bridgestone Fleet Services are your customized combination of hands-on maintenance, inspections and data that help track your fleet's tires and equipment performance.
The right combo of services enables you to get the most from your casings and find the lowest cost of ownership for your fleet.
Collaboration is key
Bridgestone works at a deeper level with customers to find the right combination of service and information to move the needle. No other partner offers such a comprehensive solution for your fleet.
Get the most from your fleet data
We’ll help you track purchases, manage credit lines, and streamline monthly reporting. You can check your tire performance through asset tracking, and we monitor maintenance and repair history to continually drive down total tire expenditures. Our BASys™ technology suite provides real-time data to help your fleet track inventory across dealers and seamlessly share fleet specs across the dealer network.
Your dealer has your back
When you partner with your dealer or representative and track mileage, over time you can begin building an accurate picture of your tire program. You already have a sense of whether or not a tire is performing, but the data will tell you if the performance is living up to your expectations. Soon, the tire program you and your dealer built together will help you optimize the performance of your fleet all the way down to your custom specs.
There’s no substitute for quality tires and regular maintenance
Start with a quality tire. Buy the best you can afford and then retread them as much as you can. Follow all the best maintenance practices.
Proactively staying on top of tire and trailer maintenance will help you avoid extra expenses down the road. And with nationwide availability, you have reliable service nearby, regardless of where your terminals or trailers are located.
Always be ready to roll with a Yard Check
A Yard Check focuses on tire pressure, tread depth, and dual mating on tractors, trailers and other fleet equipment. After an inspection, we give you a report that tracks performance, with details about all items inspected and any corrective actions needed.
Federal Annual Trailer Inspection
Once a year all trailers must be inspected to meet federal regulations. Talk with your dealer about our Federal Annual Trailer Inspection service so you can receive a trustworthy inspection, maximize your uptime and free up your staff to work on more critical maintenance tasks.
The inspection is performed by one of our Authorized Service Providers. The inspection complies with guidelines set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in the “Minimum Periodic Inspection Standards".
Plus, the BASys™ Fleet Analyzer is available to help you track trends over time and make more informed decisions about your trailers.
Mounted Wheel Services
Bridgestone Commercial Solutions dealers offer their own Mounted Wheel services to provide fleets a full supply of perfectly maintained tires and wheels ready to install at all times. Mounted Wheel services generally include mounting and dismounting tires from wheels, new valve assembly and airing up tires to fleet specifications. All the fleet mechanic has to do is install the finished wheels on the vehicles. We also replenish ready racks at each fleet location, which means increased uptime, improved shop safety and better efficiencies all around.
With Bridgestone in the picture, your fleet mechanics can concentrate on core maintenance, and you don’t have the expense of additional shop equipment.
Wheel & Rim Refinishing
Adding wheel and rim refinishing to your overall tire program helps you increase the operational readiness of your vehicles and provide consistency of product throughout your fleet. A quality refinishing process includes a thorough inspection of wheels and rims, followed by removal of paint, dirt, grease, rust and excessive coating buildup. The final touch is a finish with durable Armor Kote™ or Powder Coat Paint.
These are the seemingly small details that give your fleet a competitive advantage by improving vehicle safety and allowing your drivers to take pride in their vehicles.
