The Company works with its key OEM customers on Raw Material Index (RMI) based pricing, driving trust and transparency. However, the Company has limited presence in Commercial category (Truck & Bus) which contributes to almost half of the tyre industry which limits its ability for portfolio selling and ability to mitigate risk of the Farm category.
Goodyear inaugurated its first mobile tyre service van on 26th Feb 2021 which is currently operational in Gurugram and Faridabad. Consumers can avail doorstep delivery of Goodyear tyres and other services like tyre installation, wheel balancing and puncture repair at their convenient time.
