Transportation Company Selects Goodyear Fleet Technology
Dec. 18, 2019—Norfolk Southern Railway Co. has selected The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s TPMS Plus (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) technology for its trailer fleet across North America.
TPMS Plus is a part of Goodyear's Tire Management Program, designed to help fleets save time and money by alerting them to developing tire situations. The solution's on-vehicle sensors monitor tire conditions in real time, allowing fleets to quickly identify and triage issues like air leaks, low pressure and abnormal temperature. Once a potential issue is detected, Goodyear Fleet HQ can assist in routing the driver to a Goodyear service network location or dispatch roadside assistance to perform preventative maintenance.
After a successful TPMS Plus pilot with Norfolk Southern's intermodal operations, Goodyear began to deploy the solution at the Norfolk Southern Fairburn, Ga., facility earlier this year. Installations will be expanding to additional facilities in Illinois, Indiana and Florida over the next several months.
