Drivers and fleet operators in Europe are some of Continental’s most dedicated customers, with the Conti Hybrid tyre range proving itself as a safe, reliable, cost effective and versatile solution for long distance hauls across countries and borders.
While selecting the right tyres for use is key for transport companies wanting to optimise the operating cost of their fleets, the Conti Hybrid gives impressive results — with retreading solutions helping to ensure sustainable cost optimisation.
Companies in the Netherlands and Belgium are examples of some that have experienced the Conti Hybrid’s benefits first-hand.
Amongst these is renowned global logistics service provider Den Hartogh, which uses the Conti Hybrid both on its tractors and towed units. Specialising in transporting chemicals, the safe handling of vehicles in all weather conditions is a top priority – and Conti delivers! Den Hartogh provides a glowing report, saying its drivers feel safe and in control at all times, while being pleased with the Conti Hybrid’s fuel efficiency. “Overall, we can recommend the use of Conti Hybrid – the tyres are impressive.”
Belgian forwarding agent Eskatrans (specialising in container transport) also relies on Continental for its long-distance fleet tyres. Owner, Steven Meeus, is delighted that the Conti Hybrid HD3 drive axle tyre is now also available as a hot-retreaded tyre. “We also equip our vehicles with retreaded ContiRe tyres because we are convinced of the quality and cost-efficiency. In addition, using ContiRe tyres contributes to significantly reducing CO2 emissions and conserving the environment.”
Frank Walloch, Head of Development for Continental TBR in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa), is very satisfied with the consistently positive feedback from the transport industry. “Our aim was to maximise tyre mileage, minimise fuel consumption, and further increase retreading capability to support fleet operators in sustainably optimising their fleet costs.”
