CTNA holds fleet fuel workshop
Continental Tire North America Inc. (CTNA) recently hosted a "Beat the Best" fuel savings workshop at its proving grounds in Uvalde, Texas. The company discussed the complexities of fuel efficiency during the event.
"Continental engineers, product managers and territory sales managers worked hand in hand with fleet managers to discuss the myths and realities of fuel efficiency, as well as conduct tire demonstrations," say CTNA officials.
Topics included driving techniques, rolling resistance, aerodynamics and others.
"We gave fleets a thorough understanding of the factors that affect fuel efficiency and how their truck tires are an integral part of the equation," says Clif Armstrong, director of marketing for Continental truck tires, the Americas.
"Our goal was to demonstrate in the workshop and out on the track that fuel savings is not only the most impactful strategy to lower driving costs, but that it is more easily attainable than they might think."
