DUNCAN, S.C. (March 2, 2010) — Tire Centers L.L.C. (TCI) has launched Track My Tread, an online tool to help its customers track their tires from “cradle to grave.”
The proprietary fleet asset management system provides TCI customers with complete asset accountability, streamlined maintenance shop operations, automated inventory replenishment and true total lifecycle costs, according to the company, a subsidiary of Michelin North America Inc. TCI operates a nationwide network of commercial truck tire centers and Michelin Retread Technologies plants.
Fleets can track the lifecycle of their tires from purchase to repairs to retreading and even to the scrap pile. This enables the customer to have accurate reporting and a true total cost of ownership throughout the lifecycle of the tire, according to TCI.
“At TCI we have devoted an extensive amount of effort developing new and innovative solutions aimed at optimizing the tire management process for our customers,” said Nate Kirian, TCI's vice president, commercial sales and marketing. “We believe Track My Tread will be a game changer in the industry.”
