Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2014 -- Magline, a lightweight route distribution solution, developed a modified convertible truck to transport soiled and clean linens. This new technology has allowed specific route distributors to design a new bin that works with the convertible trucks. Magline best known for beverage route delivery systems is excited about the expansion into the linen industry.
