Bridgestone Americas introduced the V-Steel Port Container Straddle (VPCS) radial tire, specially designed for straddle containers used in ports terminals and intermodal yards.

The new VPCS is engineered with enhanced load capacity, speed rating and durability for more efficient operations and extended service life.

“Ports face unique challenges and need equipment that remains productive in virtually any kind of condition, 24 hours a day and seven days a week,” said Rob Seibert, President, Off the Road, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas. “With the VPCS, our team of engineers set out to design a tire that meets these challenges head-on and keeps our world’s supply chain moving forward.”

The Bridgestone VPCS radial tire is currently available in two sizes: 450/95R25 and 480/95R25.

Key innovations in the design of the Bridgestone VPCS radial tire include:

  • A new tread pattern and more durable casing structure for a 22% longer service life.
  • A new high-strength casing design that delivers a 28% higher load index, outperforming segment competitors.
  • OR
  • A Cooler Running Tire Design that provides a 40% higher max speed, allowing carriers to increase efficiency and move more per hour.

Bridgestone offers a complete lineup of Bridgestone and Firestone port tires designed for high stability, increased wear resistance and premium performance on a port terminal. In addition to straddle carriers, the Bridgestone port lineup features products for application on lift trucks, automated guided vehicles, container handlers, and cranes.

The new VPCS tire aligns with the “Efficiency,” “Economy” and “Ease” values Bridgestone E8 Commitment.
