Farrall’s goes full Michelin with help of Quinton Tyres

Logistics and warehousing firm Farrall’s Group has switched its fleet of 65 trucks and 100 trailers from a mixture of tyres to a Michelin-only policy, following a demonstration by local dealer Quinton Tyres.

The rubber – which will come from Michelin’s X Multi range – will be subject to a multi-life policy, whereby tyres are removed and regrooved once the tread depth reaches 3-4mm. Worn examples will subsequently be retreaded at the manufacturer’s remix plant in Stoke. 

“Quinton Tyres put the Michelin solution forward when we went to market for a new tyre partner and we were really intrigued to see the difference a professionally managed Michelin policy could make,” said MD Matthew Farrall, “the level of detail and technology they used to complete a full audit inspection of the fleet was very impressive.

“We compared the product against data for rival brands, but it was the Michelin tyres which stood out in terms of fuel efficiency, pence per mile and longevity, particularly when we factored in regrooving and retreading.

“The move means we are now saving fuel and improving the sustainability of our operation. We take a lot of pride in our fleet and are focused on making sure the team has the best tools to do the job.”
