Paragon's Multi Depot transport planning software enables companies with several depots to plan the routes for all their vehicles and drivers centrally as a single planning task.

Depot boundaries are adjusted dynamically to ensure calls are routed from the most suitable depot according to fleet availability and the geographic spread of orders on the day. This improves overall transport efficiency and avoids having vehicles and drivers standing idle at one depot while hiring extra resources at another.

Paragon Multi Depot transport management software helps you:

  • Plan optimised routes for multiple depots, ensuring fuel efficiency across the whole operation
  • Organise delivery schedules for each depot for improved fleet utilisation
  • Improve overall fleet efficiency with flexible depot boundaries
  • Prevent having to hire extra vehicles at some depots while others have vehicles standing idle

How does Paragon Multi Depot routing and scheduling software work?

Paragon's software is highly configurable and capable of handling the wide range of transport constraints that arise in logistics operations.

Running on a Windows operating platform, Paragon's transport optimisation system holds details of customer addresses, delivery quantities, time windows, vehicle sizes, driver shift details, and other transportation parameters.

Using a highly developed algorithm designed specifically for optimising road-based transport operations, Paragon's software uses digital mapping to calculate the most effective delivery and collection sequences with accurate journey times, allocating loads to appropriate vehicles and drivers accordingly. This ensures that the schedules are geographically feasible to meet promised arrival time windows, while improving fleet utilisation and productivity through efficient routes with minimal total mileage incurred and empty running reduced.


Benefits

  • Reduce transport costs with central scheduling of multiple depots
  • Avoid hiring extra vehicles at one depot while another has vehicles standing idle
  • Improve efficiency with central planning visibility
  • Ensure consistent planning standards across all your depots
