According to foreign media reports, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is working with Borrow on a new innovative service pilot project to continue to supply tires and solutions for future mobile travel providers. Headquartered in West Hollywood, California, Borrow is a short-term subscription company for pure electric vehicles.
Goodyear is providing the network's fleet with a unique predictive tire service solution to predict and automate tire maintenance and replacement services. Leveraging Goodyear's expertise in the tire field, the cloud-based platform predicts and automates tire service through vehicle data and proprietary algorithms.
In this pilot project, Goodyear's focus is on providing tire services to the fleet while providing additional services to maximize Borrow's uptime and improve the customer experience. At present, Goodyear uses its mobile trucks to provide services. With the continuous advancement of the pilot project, Goodyear may join the dealers and its retail stores affiliated with the company.
