Allstar launches new fleet tyre service

A new tyre service for fleets has been introduced through the Allstar ServicePoint online SMR portal, thanks to a new partnership with Colewood Automotive.
The new service means fleets can use the portal to buy tyres, and also book a fitting at more than 1,500 fitters across the UK, or alternatively to have the tyres delivered.
The portal allows users to filter and search tyres by parameters such as brand, speed rating, standard EU tyre label gradings, and summer and winter options, with price breakdowns shown before purchase, and deals and promotions from tyre manufacturers also displayed.
Paul Holland, managing director of UK fuel at Allstar's parent company Fleetcor, said: "When you look at many vehicle profiles, tyres can be the single most expensive item of SMR expenditure, so helping fleets to minimise costs in this area is crucial.
"The new partnership with Colewood Automotive helps us to do this, adding the buying power of the Allstar ServicePoint user base to their existing tyre e-commerce partners in order to access highly competitive pricing and high service standards.
"Overall, the new tyre offering builds on the strengths of the platform that we have developed since its launch four years ago. We give fleets the means to buy SMR online easily at a wide range of suppliers at competitive prices, using technology that helps them manage their requirements proactively."
