How Restaurant Linen Suppliers Can Benefit from GPS Fleet Tracking

4 Jun 2018

You probably know by now that investing in GPS fleet tracking for your restaurant linen supply business can save you money when it comes to fuel costs related to deliveries. It does this by assisting you in planning more fuel efficient, cost-effective delivery routes and eliminating unnecessary side trips and schedule interruptions throughout the day.

What you may not realize is that there are many, many more ways GPS can help you keep your restaurant linen supply customers happy and your profits growing. These are just a few ways your restaurant linen supply business can benefit from GPS tracking.

Plan Routes around Restaurant Schedules

Most restaurants only accept deliveries during certain hours. It will be different according to the types of restaurant and the hours it operates. For instance, restaurants that are open for lunch and dinner are happy to accept early morning deliveries, while those that operate for breakfast and lunch often prefer deliveries in the later afternoon, after the lunch rush, but before the dinner crowd begins trickling in.

Restaurants that are only open for dinner prefer that you deliver linens, tablecloths, and uniforms between the hours of 2:00 and 4:00 on average to ensure they arrive before evening prep hits high gear but not so early that management has to come in during off hours to accept deliveries. GPS tracking can help you sort through the various delivery schedules (most restaurants post the hours they accept deliveries) to plan cost-effective routes that make your customers happy.

Improves Vehicle Maintenance

Because restuarants often have such short delivery windows and you take care of more than one restaurant on an average day, it is important to keep your trucks operating well and on the road. One truck down for repairs or breaking down in the middle of a route can through your day (and the restaurants you service) into complete disarray.

GPS tracking can be used to schedule routine maintenance. This helps prevent many common problems that cause breakdowns and may be instrumental in identifying potential problems before they derail your delivery of linens, rugs, and more to area restaurants. More importantly, it can help to reduce your costs and extend the life of your delivery trucks.

Don’t just take our word for it, use GPS tracking for your restaurant linen supply business today and see what a difference it makes for your bottom line and your customer satisfaction numbers.
