Dallas, Texas – Michelin is rolling a new application for Blackberry smart phones used in Canada and the U.S., which will allow truck drivers to locate the nearest Michelin dealership.

“Based on research into the most popular mobile platforms in the trucking industry, we launched the Blackberry application first,” said Jaye Young, U.S. country marketing manager of Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “But the Android and iPhone applications are not far behind. It’s no secret that today’s business runs in real time, and our customers expect information literally at their fingertips, including information about where they can find Michelin tires.”

The application provides the location of the nearest Michelin truck tire or service provider, as well as basic information about the location, all from the Blackberry device. Users can call Michelin’s ONCall emergency response service directly from the app, or search for a provider by category, including emergency road service, travel plazas, on-site tire service or MRT retread providers.
