Centurion Tyre trailer improves safety and efficiency in OTR movements

by on 13th December 2017

OTR tyres are a fundamental part of mining operations and a major component of a mine’s logistics requirements.

Mining companies need clear visibility of their OTR tyre supply chains to ensure they have the stock to support their ongoing operational requirements.

Centurion’s dedicated team of specialists has been expertly and safely handling, transporting and storing OTR tyres for clients in the mining industry for more than ten years.

Our trailers are custom designed and built to safely and efficiently transport tyres ranging from 525/80R25s right up to the massive 60/80R57s.

Our remote control loading and unloading process makes our trailers the safest in the business.

Remote control operated restraint arms safely hold the tyres in position while loading and unloading, eliminating the need for manual restraining using straps or chains.

The engineered restraint arms lock tyres into place remotely, keeping the operator safe and reducing manual handling requirements.

Streamlined loading and unloading processes improve tyre cycle times without compromising safety.

Our trailer is tested against 16 stringent safety standards and four (4) infrastructure standards ensuring it complies with Performance Based Standards (PBS).

Centurion has transported more than 3000 tyres in the past 12 months, configuring road trains in either double or triple configurations to suit our client’s requirements.

Transporting tyres vertically reduces the number of prime movers, pilot vehicles and trailers needed for each journey whilst reducing delivery costs, road congestion and environmental impact.

Each tyre has a unique serial number and is tracked through Centurion’s WMS system giving our customers 360 degree visibility of their OTR supply chain at all times.

Centurion caters for all OTR brands – Bridgestone, Michelin, Firestone and Goodyear and we have ample storage capacity at our Perth HQ and other distribution centres Australia wide.
