Trelleborg features smart solutions at CeMAT 2016

Trelleborg Wheel Systems, showcases two intelligent, new solutions for the materials handling market at CeMAT 2016 – the world’s leading trade fair for intralogistics and supply-chain management – being held in Hanover between May 31 and June 3 2016.

Trelleborg is highlighting both its premium Pit Stop Line solid tyres and new I-Rent solution, which allows forklift truck dealers to accurately offer tyre inclusive contracts to their leased truck customers.

Jean-Paul Mindermann, president Business Unit Industrial Tyres, says: “At Trelleborg Wheel Systems we believe that as a strategic partner to the forklift industry we need to be committed 100 per cent to delivering innovations that add value to our customers. We like to go beyond the products themselves and instead of thinking purely like a manufacturer, to be the applications expert that helps our customers to achieve their goals.”

I-Rent helps dealers and end users to build on transparent pricing

At this CeMAT Trelleborg is introducing I-Rent, a web-based service that allows forklift truck dealers to accurately include the full cost of tyres in a lease contract. Historically, only a small percentage of lease contracts have made provision for tyres and generally neither to the satisfaction of the user or the forklift dealer. Experience shows how difficult it can be to accurately predict tyre life due to a great disparity in applications and drivers. Therefore, if a customer wishes to have tyres included in the maintenance contract, the dealer usually applies an educated guess and includes one set of tyres per year. This often means, however, that tyres are changed too early, when there is still residual tread life, and the end-user will pay too much.

Trelleborg has combined its know-how and the technology of its Pit Stop Line tyres, with their innovative, orange-coloured wear-indicator lines, to create I-Rent. I-Rent offers an all-inclusive solution that allows dealers to include tyres in their maintenance contracts and at the same time, be competitive in lease pricing, offer cost transparency, and secure their revenue stream over the period of the lease.

Mindermann continues, “I-Rent is just one of the smart solutions we are presenting at CeMAT that deliver added value to our customers. While our Pit Stop Line premium tyre feature is designed to increase productivity, safety and sustainability by simplifying tyre replacement, the I-Rent solution allows equipment dealers to make life easier for their customers through all-inclusive lease contracts.”
