GPS Fleet Tracking for Commercial Laundry and Linen Services

10 Sep 2019

As a commercial laundry and linen services company, you have a huge responsibility keeping the biggest businesses in your city stocked with clean and spotless linens, sheets, towels, tablecloths, napkins, and uniforms. You’re responsible for helping them put their best faces forward to their customers. That means that getting the items delivered in time for major events, lunch rushes, and shift changes is extremely important for your business and for theirs.

These are just a few ways GPS fleet tracking can help your commercial laundry and linen service do just that.

Avoid Unnecessary Traffic Delays Saving Time and Money Every Day

Live tracking with GPS fleet tracking allows you to plan routes around major traffic snarls. These slower traffic patterns can be caused by any number of things, including:

  • Trains
  • Accidents
  • Injuries
  • Road closures
  • Road construction
  • Parades

These delays can throw your schedule off in catastrophic ways. GPS fleet tracking allows you to plan your routes for maximum efficiency while routing around avoidable delays, keeping everyone happy with timelier deliveries.

Monitor Driver Behavior and Make Changes Accordingly

While most people instantly think of things like speeding as negative and costly driving behavior (which it certainly is), it is not the only thing business owners want to monitor. Other things GPS tracking can help you monitor include:

  • Route deviations
  • Unscheduled stops and detours for personal errands
  • Aggressive and reckless driving
  • Longer than necessary stops at specific locations (once or twice is not necessarily a problem, once or twice a week, or even a day, may be)

The idea is to identify potential problems for specific drivers and seek to create a solution that eliminates the problem or change policies allowing you to eliminate problem drivers.

Reduce Fuel Costs and Other Expenses for Your Organization

More efficient routing that eliminates long delays, consistent traffic jams, and having double coverage in some areas can help your company save a lot of money on wasted fuel alone. But that is not the only way you can save. In addition to lowering fuel costs you can also use GPS fleet tracking to reduce other expenses, too, including:

  • Maintenance costs
  • Repair costs
  • Accidents
  • Insurance expenses
  • Waste and other expenses related to theft
  • Labor costs

GPS tracking can’t do everything for you. It can, however, help you make your entire commercial laundry and linen services business more efficient and profitable. More importantly, it can help you put your best foot forward by helping your customers put their best feet forward. That is very good for your business today and as it continues to grow.
