Rose Paving over 40 years of service over black and white parking lot

4 things that logistics property managers should know

Transportation and distribution center parking lots see more than their fair share of wear and tear due to the nature of their operations. Heavy traffic flows and heavier vehicles place undue stress on asphalt. Luckily, Rose Paving has worked with clients in logistics for over 40 years and has learned a thing (or four) about keeping parking lots pristine and operations running smoothly.

1. Schedule routine maintenance to prevent damages.

When a parking lot undergoes so much wear and tear in a short amount of time, proactive maintenance becomes an essential part of day-to-day operations. By sealing cracks as soon as they emerge and sealcoating your lot regularly to protect it from oil and gas spills, you reduce the chance of getting caught off-guard by a problem that might take days to fix. Regular curb maintenance and asphalt removal and repair help prevent accidents, keeping your workplace safe.

2. Phase maintenance to avoid suspending operations.

Our project managers understand that when maintenance hinders your business operations, you’re essentially “paying double.” To prevent that from happening and still allow paving activities to continue, we work to understand your site’s operations and design a plan that works for you. Working after hours, setting up alternative routes and dividing work into stages are just some of the things we can do so our work doesn’t impede yours.

3. Maintain bright, clear markings to maximize safety.

We work around heavy machinery and know first-hand how important it is to put safety first. Clearly marked loading zones, parking spaces and route markers can help forklifts and other heavy machinery better navigate the area and avoid workplace accidents and injury. Our lot-marking experts can re-stripe a lot per existing design or work with you to come up with more efficient parking lots or traffic flows.

4. Work with an accurate budget estimate.

We know that surprise expenses can torpedo projects and, worse, ruin the trust between a property manager and contractor. In our more than 40 years in the paving industry, we’ve learned that preparing for expenses upfront is the best way to stay on budget. Our Pavement Management Plans start with an assessment of the current state of your property to best anticipate issues, schedule maintenance for the year and estimate costs accordingly.
