Let’s say your company is responsible for refilling vending machines installed in a particular city or geographic area. You fill up your trucks and have your drivers stop by each vending machine, take a quick inventory, and restock them accordingly.
However, there are a few potential stumbling blocks that could impact efficiency and bottom-line. For instance, some machines won’t require restocking and some products are bound to be in higher demand. As such, your drivers run the risk of making unnecessary stops or running out of certain products before they finish their routes.
