The platform enables a fleet operator to enhance tyre life, improve fuel efficiency, reduce incidence of accidents and improve the overall operational efficiency for the fleet. Tyre Express targets working with Fleet operators who would like to actively leverage technology to improve operational efficiency. They are also collaborating with Tyre OEMs to improve service offerings to institutional clients.

Commenting on the announcement, Anju Gupta, Co-founder and President at IvyCamp, said, that IvyCamp is able to engage with start-ups from a variety of industries and connect them to our Global Alumni network.
