Bridgestone Fleet Care advanced technologies paired with Pilot Company’s nationwide network of travel centers will provide actionable tire intelligence for commercial fleets.
The initial trial program will install the Bridgestone tire pressure monitoring solution at 200 Pilot and Flying J travel centers.
The new network aligns with the “Efficiency,” “Extension” and “Ease” values of the Bridgestone E8 Commitment and furthers Pilot Company’s commitment to providing the trucking industry with innovative solutions that are designed to increase safety and efficiency for its customers.
Each router currently being installed in the fuel canopies of select Pilot and Flying J travel centers is linked to the Bridgestone tire pressure monitoring solution, IntelliTire, and transmits real-time tire data in two minutes or less from trucks and buses to fleet managers.
The use of the Bridgestone advanced tire monitoring system at Pilot and Flying J travel centers allows both companies to expand their service offerings and support the growing need for evolving technology solutions that make it easier and faster to maintain vehicles. This program adds to Pilot Company’s bundle of fleet solutions, which provides trucking companies with full-service financial, maintenance and fuel packages.
The initial trial phase will begin this summer with a rollout of the tire monitoring technology at 200 Pilot and Flying J locations.
“Physical, on-the-ground touchpoints are critical elements to the success of digital, data-driven fleet solutions, and together they enable synergies to improve mobility,” said Chris Ripani, president, Commercial Tire Group, Bridgestone Americas. “With a robust footprint and strong fleet relationships, Pilot Company is the perfect partner to help us develop a connected network that is designed to allow our shared customers to minimize downtime, save on costs and improve driver safety now and in the future.”

“With the safety of our customers in mind, we are pleased to leverage our network of Pilot and Flying J travel centers to help deliver IntelliTire technology to the road—making it easy for fleets and drivers to maintain their trucks and minimize downtime during routine fuel stops. This project serves as one of many ways we’re enhancing our locations with the latest technologies to ensure we’re providing guests with a travel experience designed to meet their needs.”
