Bridgestone Americas and Einride have announced a partnership to co-create mobility solutions for electrified and autonomous Class 8 vehicles. The companies say 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.

As part of the agreement, Bridgestone will become the official U.S. 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 join Bridgestone’s U.S. logistics network.

The partnership aims to grow Bridgestone’s electrified vehicle fleet over time and reduce the company’s carbon footprint, the company says. The initial truck deployment will transport Bridgestone tire inventory between the company’s LaVergne, Tenn. commercial truck tire manufacturing plant and Lebanon, Tenn. distribution facility.
