IWJS turns to Vacu-Lug for tyre management

Published:  21 July, 2017

Waste water management specialist Industrial Water Jetting Systems (IWJS) has appointed Vacu-Lug Traction Tyres to provide a comprehensive tyre management service for its UK vehicle fleet.

IWJS decided to introduce a single tyre fleet management policy across each division of the Group, to improve efficiency and ensure compliance for its mixed fleet of 230 vans, trucks and cars.

Each vehicle’s tyre requirement is now individually monitored and controlled using Vacu-Lug’s web-based fleet management software – VMS.

Vacu-Lug combines standardised procurement – using a mixture of Westlake, Hankook and Vacu-Lug’s own Logistik tyres – with full reporting data regarding inspections, tyre fitment details, service fitments and work authorisations.

‘We provide round-the-clock waste management and industrial cleaning services throughout the UK and with multiple, ongoing commitments to numerous industry sectors, we need to ensure maximum vehicle uptime while keeping a close eye on compliance and cost,’ said IWJS Group Buyer, Jowan Burt.

‘Now we can measure it, we can manage it. Where before we had limited control over a somewhat disparate tyre procurement and management policy, today we have instantly accessible and accurate tyre-related data at our fingertips.

‘Not only does Vacu-Lug’s VMS system enable us to remain compliant but also it provides us with the tools to identify and rectify any high cost areas or anomalies as soon as they appear.’

Industrial Water Jetting Systems celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and is established as one of the leading industrial waste water management firms in the UK.
