Whether in their city or over the road, commercial truck operators anywhere in the United States and Canada can now get instant access to emergency road and tire service from Continental, using their Apple iPhone or Wi-Fi enabled iPad.

Continental Tire the Americas, LLC  introduced its first mobile truck tire dealer locator application. The "Continental Truck Tires Dealer Locator" can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store starting today, and makes it easy for drivers of commercial vehicles to find the nearest authorized service provider when they need tire or emergency road service.

"Using your iPhone, the Conti Truck Tires Dealer Locator lets you find and call the dealers closest to your phone's current GPS location, or based on a location that you specify. National account customers and ContiFleet members can also dial our TrukFix hotline for service, with just a touch on their screen," said Clif Armstrong, director of marketing for commercial vehicle tires - the Americas.

 Recognizing that today's business environment depends on real-time access to information, Continental developed this smartphone application to ensure that customers can get quick access to service providers and locations when they need it most, Armstrong said.

The application can be found on the iTunes App Store by searching for "Continental Truck Tires Dealer Locator." Continental has also published a QR code to instantly download the application from its Web site at www.continental-truck.com.
