Customers gain competitive advantage despite global tyre shortage

by on

Notwithstanding the global shortage of 57" tyres, Otraco's customers continue to gain competitive advantage by utilising Otraco's tyre management solutions to improve tyre life.

Tyre maintenance services and technology solutions have never been more critical for customers as the tyre shortage takes hold. Leading the way is the tyre management and reporting system, Otracom which is helping site managers and purchasing managers to keep their operations moving within tight OPEC and CAPEX budgets whilst supporting Just-In-Time (JIT) purchasing policies.


Operating on desktop and mobile devices, including smart phones, Otracom is a software application that utilises data feeds from remote devices to monitor tyre life. The data feeds enable Otracom to track and manage tyres and rims from manufacture to disposal, issue alerts when maintenance is required, and deliver performance data reporting.

An Integrated Tyre Management Technology Solution

Otraco's new Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which is due for release in 2018, will integrate seamlessly with Otracom and augment the forecasting module by allowing tonne-kilometre tyre performance metrics to be used in procurement and forecasting processes. Mick Carr, General Manager, Otraco and Maintenance Services said that the cross-package integration of Otraco's technology solutions will provide market leading insight into improved tyre management.


Onsite, Otraco's teams are helping to extend tyre life through tyre repairing and, if warranted, retreading. Teams also perform rim tracking and maintenance, including anti-corrosion treatment and robust non-destructive testing. Importantly Zero Harm is embedded in Otraco's culture. This ensures that all services are delivered within industry leading safety standards.

"Delivering onsite reconditioning services and the latest technology solutions provides customers with a complimentary mix of practical solutions and high level data analysis. Feedback from customers is very positive, with many actively utilising our range of tyre management services to help overcome the issues with today's global tyre shortages", said Mick Carr.

Mick is encouraging companies reliant on OTR tyres to contact Otraco to see how the latest technology solutions and onsite tyre management services can help them to gain competitive advantage despite the global tyre shortage.
