Roger Warnes Transport has renewed its contract with Prometeon Tyre Group to supply tyres for their 222-strong fleet of trucks and trailers.

The Norfolk-based haulier will use Prometeon’s Pirelli-branded tyres for a further three years on 108 trucks and 114 trailers. The units are covered by a fixed pence per kilometre (PPK) contract and are used to deliver a range of produce from sugar beet and animal feed to glass across the UK. The fleet covers a total of 8.6m km per year and a large proportion of Roger Warnes’ last mile deliveries are also off road.

“Prometeon’s Pirelli-branded tyres are absolutely perfect for the nature of our bulk haulage operation,” said Ian Barclay, operations director at Roger Warnes Transport.

“They're flexible and robust enough to take any extra pressure when our vehicles are going down rough tracks that might consist of uneven material such as flint or even seashells; and they are equally suitable for our regional deliveries that might involve a long run up the M62 from Norfolk and across to Leeds with a full load of sand.”

He added: “We’ve always had a PPK deal with Prometeon, it suits the way we operate. Effectively, Prometeon own the tyre and we pay a monthly fee based upon our usage. It takes away any nasty shocks because we know the upfront price that we’ll be paying, irrespective of whether there is damage or wear and tear.”
