BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Trucking industry supplier Comdata Inc. is adding a national tire discount program to the package of national account pricing options available to Comdata MyFleet fuel-card customers in the U.S and Canada.
Comdata, a Fleetcor Technololgies Inc. company, said it has signed a number of "industry-leading" tire makers for the program but did not identify them.
"Launching our program with leading tire brands is a win-win for our Comdata MyFleet customers and their drivers," Justin King, senior vice president of product and innovation for Comdata's North American Trucking Division, said.
"By offering the best discounts at more locations, we're able to help make tires more affordable for our growing base of small business customers."
Under the new program, Comdata is joining with tire companies to offer Comdata fuel-card customers access to national account pricing on truck, trailer and retread tires nationwide.
Comdata is promoting the new program as saving purchasers 50% to 65% off the retail price of tires purchased on an emergency basis, or up to $200 per tire, depending on tire and brand. The discounts will be available at over 4,300 locations, including truck stops, nationwide, Comdata said.
"As a long-time advocate for fleet owners and truck drivers, we recognize high tire costs and inefficient tire purchasing processes as a drag on fleet operations," Mr. King said.
"Over the course of our 50-year history we've successfully helped our customers reduce their costs on everything from fuel to maintenance and repairs. Offering a national discount on tires is a natural next step for us."
Comdata claims to have more than 10,000 customers with over 100,000 trucks enrolled in the MyFleet program.
Brentwood-based Comdata provides innovative payment and operating technology that drives actionable insights from spending data, builds enhanced controls and positively impacts its clients' bottom lines.
