The service offers a mobile tyre inspection and rectification between 11pm and 7am at depots or selected ATS centres, enabling tyre repair and replacement when the vehicles are not on delivery duties.
It was launched as a response to the increase in home delivery service demand, and ATS Euromaster says the service will lead to a reduction in emergency call-outs during delivery hours.
Mark Holland, operations director from ATS Euromaster, said: “Since expanding our night shift evening inspection service, it has even exceeded our expectations.
“Fleet operators appreciate the service as they can minimise the time vehicles are off the road.
“Importantly, our staff appreciate the flexibility that we can offer. For some, not all, night-time work offers great lifestyle benefits and improves mental well-being.”
To date, ATS’s night-time shifts have resulted in 37% emergency tyre repairs, 30% priority work, such as checks and rectification being undertaken on site and scheduled 28% of callouts for daytime maintenance jobs.
The service is already generating more than 9,300 servicing jobs per month and supplements the tyre and maintenance provider’s existing 24/7, 365 days emergency tyre work service, which is provided to blue light fleets.
In August, ATS Euromaster revealed it had seen the requirement for its mobile tyre service increase over the past two years.
The company reported that it currently attends 9,000 jobs on average.
