Flatbed service truck means efficiency for PRO

Problem: Galaxy Restroom of Syracuse, New York, had a problem: It had a limited amount of capital for its annual operational growth and replacement fleet expenditures. This was due to a recent acquisition that depleted most of its capital. Meanwhile, much of the fleet it acquired was tired and outdated. The company needed to buy at least two trucks — one for service since they almost doubled in size overnight with the acquisition and a second one to help with pickup and deliveries, as they had picked up business in the event vertical as well.

Solution: The business chose a PortaLogix flatbed unit designed to service more than 65 units on a route with an 800-gallon waste tank and 350-gallon freshwater tank in the flat bed. The same truck carries up to six units on the bed to do pickups and deliveries at the same time.  

Result: Not only did Galaxy Restroom stay within its fleet budget, but it also benefited from higher profits year over year as it invested in more PortaLogix trucks. The company then did 80% of its pickups and deliveries on route with PortaLogix trucks, which allows for a much smaller fleet, less fuel expense and fewer labor hours for drivers, leading to an 55% increase in profit margins. 585-484-7009;
