Intires.com – The global one-stop tyre platform
Intires.com, a Germany-based start-up company founded in 2016, will be launching its cutting-edge digital tire trading platform aimed at global wholesalers and manufacturers during the forthcoming Tire Cologne Exhibition held end of May.
The web-based marketplace is designed to enable its customers to “trade full container and truck loads of tires in just a few clicks.”
The trading portal facilitates the buying and selling of tires for every type of vehicle, from Passenger Car Tires to Earthmover or Agricultural tires. During the ordering process, buyers virtually fill up their container and place an order in just a few clicks. Intires.com arranges the shipping of international orders with one of the world’s leading logistic providers, while offering full price transparency to customers on the portal.
One of the founders’ specific areas of interest is to increase market opportunities for Asian manufacturers by connecting them with customers in Europe, for example. Additionally, wholesalers across Europe will get access to offers from a wide base of global suppliers, while Intires.com remains their single point of contact. As quoted by the company’s management, “importers will no longer have to deal with telephone requests, non-transparent price quotes, logistic arrangements or bureaucratic freight documentation. Intires.com acts as a full service provider by offering integrated purchasing and logistics services.”
If supplier and buyer are both located outside Europe, Intires.com arranges for transportation to the port of choice. The buyer then receives the goods at his destination port and is responsible for the import procedures and taxation.
Intires.com attaches great importance to its high quality standards. As part of the quality control process, container deliveries from new suppliers are initially checked and certified at the port of origin by a leading third-party provider.
Another unique feature of Intires.com is that suppliers upload their offers on the portal and buyers are able to view and compare the offers while the suppliers remain anonymous. This means when a container or truck is ordered, Intires.com always purchases it first and then re-sells it to the final buyer.
The company’s mission statement is “to be a full-service provider for buyers and sellers at the same time while making worldwide trading easy, transparent and highly profitable.” The company will introduce itself to the tire business community during the upcoming tire shows held in Dubai and Cologne.
