Bridgestone collaborates with Scoobic to provide premium tyres for its electric vehicles

Bridgestone and its subsidiary Webfleet Solutions have reached an agreement with Scoobic Urban Mobility, a company that designs and manufactures 100% electric last-mile and urban delivery fleet vehicles.

The deal offers an integrated solutions package for Scoobic customers. All new Scoobic vehicles will come equipped with factory-installed fleet management technology from Webfleet Solutions, and will be fitted with premium Bridgestone tyres.

Bridgestone’s retail network of service locations specialising in tyres and integrated car maintenance will maintain Scoobic’s electric fleet and replace tyres when necessary.

The European-level agreement covers operations in all countries where both companies are active. Service is already being provided in Spain, France and Italy, and will soon be expanded to other markets such as Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom.

Scoobic aims to be at the forefront of the last-mile delivery market segment in Europe, which is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. The company offers public and private operators last-mile delivery and urban mobility services through its 100% electric fleet of vehicles, on a pay-per-use model. At the same time, Scoobic will leverage the telematics data to provide advanced proactive maintenance services to its customers, which include Correos, Amazon, Carrefour and Heineken.

As part of its commitment to help shape a sustainable future of mobility, Bridgestone is investing to make electric mobility more efficient and accessible to drivers and fleets. Through a fully integrated approach, Bridgestone is pioneering premium tyres and tyre technologies for EVs and dedicated fleet and mobility solutions, while also partnering with leading EV manufacturers, such as Fisker and Lightyear and offering end-to-end services across its EV-ready retail and service network.

This agreement with Scoobic is the latest milestone for Bridgestone EMIA and comes soon after its partnership announcement with EV Box to expand Europe’s EV Vehicle Charging Infrastructure.

Meanwhile, Webfleet Solutions offers state-of-the-art, data-driven telematics solutions for fleet management, enabling safer, more efficient and more profitable operations. Its software-as-a-service solution, WEBFLEET, can be used by Scoobic customers to manage their operations efficiently. It includes the EV solution system, which provides information on battery level, charging time and nearest charging points. WEBFLEET also issues alerts when it identifies that a vehicle needs to be checked, enabling greater safety and reduced vehicle downtime.
