At any point in time, people imagine what the future will look like and what innovations will change our lives — and Bridgestone does, too. There’s no better place to share our vision on the future of mobility than at CES 2021, the first virtual edition of the world's most influential tech event.
At this year’s event, we introduced Bridgestone World: our first-ever virtual interactive city that presents Bridgestone, a global leader in advanced solutions and sustainable mobility. From aircraft to Airfree: here are the six innovations we’ve created to help people and businesses manage their vehicles in a safer, smarter and more sustainable way.
At Bridgestone, we never stop innovating. We’re continually adding value to our products and services through advanced mobility solutions. By combining data and new technology, we simplify tyre management and optimise operations.
MOBOX, for example, is a mobility solution designed to provide easy value to customers through a personalised tyre and car maintenance subscription. MOBOX offers comprehensive services that allow drivers to continue their journey with zero effort and total peace of mind.
To keep that journey going for longer, we also provide reliable and sustainable retreading solutions through Bandag. These high-quality retreads extend the life of premium casings and help fleets reduce their cost per kilometre. By re-using and recycling materials, we keep the number of natural resources needed to an absolute minimum. This way, we contribute to a circular economy while also offering fast, localised and personalised solutions through our network of 90+ Bandag Franchisees in Europe.
Bridgestone moves beyond just tyres by providing value through mobility solutions. These holistic approaches include smart sensing tyres that transmit critical data that can predict and prevent maintenance issues, thanks to our novel AI-powered algorithms. Besides that, new service tools make it easier to interact with Bridgestone and our expansive service delivery network.
More than 50,000 companies worldwide rely on Webfleet Solutions, a Bridgestone company, to connect their fleets and get drivers, vehicles and businesses where they need to go. Webfleet Solutions provides telematic solutions dedicated to fleet management, asset tracking and connected car services. Webfleet Solutions also supports mobility and fleet managers in handling their daily tasks and maximising customer satisfaction by providing insurance, rental and leasing industries and car importers.

From the roads to the airspace, Bridgestone provides premium products and services wherever you go. Since aircraft maintenance is key to any airline’s operation, regular tyre inspections and robust inventory management plans are crucial to every flight’s safety. With Bridgestone’s unique tyre wear prediction technologies, aircraft insights and flight data, we optimise inspections, contribute to lower CO2 emissions and improve overall flight safety.
Despite the challenges of 2020, we’re beginning the end of the year with a milestone moment on our sustainability journey…
