NATSO and the NATSO Foundation provide solutions to truckstop and travel plaza challenges by providing education uniquely tailored to the industry including a number of resources on truckstop operations.
A remodel or renovation can give a location a face-lift and improve its aesthetics, but to be truly effective, changes should also strive to improve the store layout, offerings and merchandising in ways that reflect the latest sales trends. When done right, remodels can help operators increase sales and attract new customers.

For truckstops and travel plazas, conserving water can cut costs while also improving the company’s environmental stewardship. Monitoring and managing water is becoming even more important in certain parts of the country that are dealing with drought situations.
Three NATSO members shared their methods for reducing water usage.
Detect And Fix Any Leaks. The easiest and cheapest way to save water and money is to periodically check and fix leaks from pipes, fixtures, appliances and equipment.
Install High-Efficiency Plumbing Fixtures And Appliances. High-efficiency toilets, urinals, pre-rinse spray valves, clothes washers, dishwashers and shower heads can save water, and some municipalities offer rebates.
Checklists may seem simple, but they are a powerful tool. Some might even say they are a GREAT IDEA. Pilots use them before takeoff. Surgeons use them to save lives. Event planners use them to make sure every production goes off without a hitch. Checklists are everywhere and are used to maintain safety, improve operations and communicate information. If you’re not already using them in your business, you should.
