Rubicon Global, a company headquartered in Atlanta that provides methods designed to improve recycling efforts, has announced that The Goodyear Tire& Rubber Co., Akron, Ohio, has joined its select group of manufacturers, retailers and maintenance providers as part of the RubiconPro consortium buying program, which delivers fuel, equipment, maintenance and financial benefits to independent haulers and truckers across North America.
Through RubiconPro, independent hauling and truck fleets can now purchase Goodyear tires at special discounts, including the Goodyear Endurance WHA waste haul tire, Goodyear’s longest-wearing waste haul tire, and its matching retread. The Goodyear Endurance WHA waste haul tire features a new, scrub-resistant compound and a deep, 24/32-inch tread depth for more miles to removal.
Rubicon says the Goodyear Endurance WHA and its matching retread are key elements of Goodyear’s Total Solution of products, a nationwide network, reliable services and fleet management tools, all designed to help lower waste haul fleet operating costs.
Through the program, Goodyear will provide discounts on Goodyear and Dunlop brand commercial truck tires; Goodyear brand retreads; and Goodyear, Dunlop and Kelly brand auto and light truck tires.
Haulers using the RubiconPro program receive advance notice of all Rubicon special sourcing opportunities, as well as additional discounts on hauler equipment, smartphones and maintenance, according to the company.
“Goodyear is an exciting new addition to our RubiconPro suite of offerings,” says Marc Spiegel, co-founder, Rubicon Global.
Spiegel adds, “We are excited about extending Goodyear’s Total Solution of trusted products, a nationwide network, reliable services and fleet management tools to Rubicon members.”
