Through dust storms with cutting-edge equipmentand digital tools

The challenging environmental conditions of Israel, from severe dust storms in spring to temperatures regularly climbing above 30°Celsius in summer, require state-of-the-art vehicle management. The Be'er Sheva-based haulage company Gor Oz relies on the digital ContiConnect Live solution for tire management. Ran Gordon, Fleet Manager of Gor Oz, stated, “We have improved our tire management immensely with ContiConnect.”

Challenges of the Israeli Terrain

These tough conditions make tire management essential. Gor Oz had tried other tire monitoring systems without success. Yet, they found reliability with ContiConnect Live. Gordon mentioned, "The solution from Continental and Questar works really well for us. The system allows us to view real-time tire data, such as pressure and temperature, at any time – regardless of the vehicle’s location.”

ContiConnect Live gives us an element of certainty in a work routine already full of unpredictabilities."
