A wide range of routing and scheduling software solutions
Operationally, Paragon can be used for dynamic routing on a daily or weekly basis, master route daily management, managing transportation resources, and managing the execution of the transportation plan in real time by interfacing with tracking technologies.
In addition, Paragon software can also be used strategically for planning, optimizing and managing master routes and schedules; distribution network modeling; delivery frequency modeling; and planning optimized delivery zones, or territories.
Paragon software runs on a Windows operating platform, and takes in details of the orders to be delivered, the transportation resources available, and general information such as shift details, break requirements, drop times and site details. Using a highly developed algorithm designed specifically for optimizing road-based transportation operations, the Paragon software calculates the most effective stop sequences that meet promised time windows, allocates loads to appropriate vehicles and drivers, and uses digital mapping to calculate road-based journey times and distances. This ensures that the schedules are geographically feasible to meet promised arrival time windows, while improving fleet utilization and productivity through efficient routes with minimal total mileage incurred, with empty running reduced.

Paragon has its own dedicated team of software implementation consultants who have a wide range of skills and experience.
