  • Consistent Fleet Appearance: Ensuring all vehicles across various locations maintained a high standard of cleanliness to reflect the company’s commitment to professionalism and environmental responsibility.
  • Operational Downtime: Minimizing the downtime necessary for vehicle cleaning, which is crucial for vehicles that operate on a strict daily schedule.
