Nijhof-Wassink underlines sustainability with Profile and Nijwa Group

As of 1 September 2021, Profile Nederland and three branches of Volvo & Renault truck dealer Nijwa Group (Rijssen, Hengelo and Zwolle) will provide Nijhof-Wassink with all its tyre maintenance – for a total of 600 trucks and 600 trailers. Downtime costs money, which is why Profile works proactively to reduce breakdowns and therefore CO2 emissions for Nijhof-Wassink.

Erik Schiphorst, CEO of Nijhof-Wassink Group: “One of the reasons we chose Profile is that they work independently of brands and have a high density of branches in the Netherlands and Belgium. That means we can always rely on good quality and avoid downtime. We also have high expectations of the preventive fleet checks performed by Profile and Nijwa Group together with Profile’s breakdown service and mobile service. We also have 24/7 online access to the maintenance already done and our own workshops can access the tyre management system. That makes the work very transparent. It is very easy to call up the tyre status of each vehicle, right down to the tyre position. We really like the proactive tyre management based on clear online data as it gives us continual insight into costs and tyre performance.  Earlier this year, we signed a sustainability pledge to proactively contribute to the EU Green Deal target of reducing CO2 emissions by 10% by 2025, 30% by 2030 and eventually being climate-neutral by 2050. The partnership with Profile helps to tackle this objective together as a logistics chain."
