DSV expands into tyre business

Danish transport company DSV has expanded its involvement in the tyre technology sector by taking on distributorship for Westlake tyres in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

The company, which has also taken on an adcovacy role for US-made tyre sealant liquid Ultra-Seal in 2016, has reportedly been using Westlake tyres in its operational fleet since 2012.

A new agrrement with the brand’s European distributor, Pneuhage, now allows the company to offer Westlake tyres to all contracted hauliers as well as to the general commercial vehicle market.

“This is a great achievement in further commercialising the relationship between DSV and ZC Rubber (Westlake parent company, ed.),” commented Flemming Steiness, Deputy Equipment Manager at DSV.

“Based on our extensive tests and the past good experiences with Westlake tyres, we have also decided to fit our new trailers with Westlake tyres. Add to that the insertion of Ultra-Seal into the tyres, and this creates an optimum cost-effective combination for us in our operational fleet-management”.
