2021.08.12

  • Partnership will enable technical collaboration, pairing Einride’s vehicle intelligence with Bridgestone’s smart-sensing tire data to drive operational efficiency, safety and sustainability for fleets.

  • Einride will deploy all-electric trucks within Bridgestone’s U.S. shipping logistics network. 

  • Bridgestone will be the exclusive tire supplier for Einride electrified and autonomous trucks in the U.S. market. 

STOCKHOLM. (August 12, 2021) – Einride and Bridgestone today announced a partnership aimed at co-creating innovative and sustainable mobility solutions for electrified and autonomous Class 8 vehicles. The collaboration will allow Einride to collect new layers of safety and efficiency-related data from Bridgestone’s smart-sensing tires, while enabling Bridgestone to integrate its advanced mobility technologies into Einride’s onboard vehicle platforms. Together, the companies will work to create safer and more efficient mobility solutions to drive a more sustainable future for large commercial truck fleets.

As part of the agreement, Bridgestone will become an official US launch partner of Einride and the exclusive tire supplier for Einride in the U.S. market. In turn, Einride will supply connected electric trucks and digital services under a subscription agreement to Bridgestone for its U.S. shipping logistics network, with the aim of electrifying the majority of Bridgestone’s landside transport needs by 2025. 

“Partnering with Bridgestone is a great match for us both from a commercial and technical standpoint,'' said Niklas Reinedahl, General Manager, Einride North America. “We have an ambitious business plan for electric and autonomous transportation in the U.S. as well as innovative plans to improve our capabilities by leveraging tire-as-a-sensor technology and insights derived from the tire telematics data.”

“We are incredibly excited about this partnership and the opportunity to accelerate our shared goal of creating innovative solutions for fleets while advancing the transformation of Bridgestone into a sustainable solutions company,” said Nizar Trigui, Chief Technology Officer and Group President, Solutions Businesses, Bridgestone Americas. “There is a very high ceiling for innovation within this relationship, including the use of vehicle and tire data and advanced analytics to drive efficiency, safety and low-carbon fleet mobility.”
