Second Life, lower costs
“Transport companies are suffering. We were looking for an extra sales tool to present our interesting range”, states Bertus Heuver, director of Heuver Tyrewholesale. “The renewed Aeolus Eco-Twin tyres are that tool. At the end of the day, it is all about costs; and transporters prefer them to be as low as possible. Our new concept, which involves combining new and renewed Aeolus tyres with similar qualities and life-span, has been well received. It allows transporters and/or fleet owners to improve their returns due to the positive shift in kilometre/cost price ratio. The market’s enthusiasm for our initiative was also noticeable at the Reifen trade fair, where there was a great deal of interest in the Aeolus Eco-Twin and the ‘Second Life concept’.”
CCT Logistik: ‘Concept successful’
One of the first companies to implement the concept was CCT Logistik GmbH. Ralph Meier, tenders manager and fleet controller: “CCT Logistik has been combining high quality transport with top class service for our customers since 1996. We place great emphasis on our fleet and our purchasing policy. Aeolus Eco-Twin tyres have proven themselves in our intensive daily operations without any problems. They are stable and help us to reduce our costs. The Eco-Twin is a genuinely good alternative; so Heuver's new concept is a major success. We are pleased to have selected it."
