The transportation industry is always at the forefront

The transportation industry is always at the forefront

Nowadays, companies related to the transport industry that do not update run the risk of being left behind and forgotten. The transportation industry is constantly in search of new technologies and to be at the forefront in all areas of this large and important market.

On the other hand, companies both large and small, concerned with keeping up to date, looking for innovative solutions that provide long-term savings and take environmentally friendly directions continue to thrive and succeed.

A great example of innovative change is Goodyear, which is constantly updating the products they offer to the transportation market. The company has a social responsibility program that is highly committed to the environment. A current example is the production of soybean oil-based tires for waste truck.

Goodyear announced in the first half of the year at Waste Expo 2022 that beginning in the third quarter of this year, Endurance WHA model tires would already be made from a renewable soybean oil compound and they were already available for order in North America.

The company`s goal with this action is to completely replace petroleum-derived oils by 2040. According to Jessica Julian, North American Product Marketing Business Manager, it would take about 16 fluid ounces of petroleum oil that will be replaced by renewable soybean oil.

Jessica added that if this measure of a tire is applied to a regional fleet of about 500 waste transportation vehicles, the reduction in oil would be equivalent to the reduction of about 15 barrels of oil.

Truck fleets that switch to Endurance WHA tires will be closer to meeting their sustainability goals as well as having longer-lasting tires thanks to the dual-ply tread compound.
