CHICAGO — More than 92% of respondents to this month’s unscientific Wire survey say their laundry transports goods to/from their plant by truck or van, but the size of their service areas varies greatly.
The majority — only 32% — serves a radius of 100 to 200 miles. Running a close second were service areas of up to 25 miles and greater than 200 miles, both of which were selected by 24% of respondents. Next was 50 to 100 miles (16%). Last was 25 to 50 miles (4%).
