Transportation Resource Scheduling Tool (TRST) is a resource-scheduling / fleet sizing tool that can generate optimal Tractor, Trailer, and Driver schedules for a given dispatching scenario. It is a Windows based application with an extremely user-friendly interface. Problem setup and solution generation requires minimal user interaction virtually eliminating the learning curve on the system. TRST is designed for fleet operators to determine optimal fleet (tractor, trailer, and driver) requirements to support any dispatch scenario. It can be easily interfaced with other routing, TMS, as well as on-board computer systems.
Paradox Routing Tool (PART) is a Windows based application that can help with distribution network design, territory planning, shipment consolidation and carrier mode selection, and vehicle routing and scheduling. Considering order and vehicle information, DOT regulations, and customer service level requirements, PART uses powerful optimization algorithms to generate vehicle routes and schedules resulting in least distance and cost. Its interfaces with Microsoft MapPoint and ALK Technologies’ PC*MILER suite allow for superior mapping, geo coding, and path finding capabilities.
Fastnet is an additional Paragon software module which helps logistics operations identify the ideal network of distribution centers. It also allocates customers to the best DC location in order to reduce total transportation costs. It uses up-to-date roadmap data to determine accurate journey calculations which are behind the DC network optimization.
Paragon Integrated Fleets enables trucks at multiple sites to be treated as a single integrated transportation resource, so that movements to and from different DCs can be combined into efficient routes that reduce empty running.
Resource Manager is Paragon's transportation management software which enables you to manage day to day availability of your trucks and drivers. You can set up calendars of truck maintenance days and define the shifts you want your drivers to work.
For transportation and logistics operations with more than one distribution center, Paragon's Multi Depot routing and scheduling software can be used to plan the whole operation as a single centrally optimized transportation plan.
The standard Paragon system enables each user to calculate efficient and practical transportation schedules for trucks based at a single DC.
This can help you cut your transportation costs, provide a more reliable delivery service, reduce planning time, and cut fuel costs.
The squeeze is on. Facilities costs are fixed. Fuel, insurance, wages and benefits continue to rise. Competition continues to stiffen. Given these pressures, the only avenue open for shaving costs is in the administrative activities involved in running the business.
The 3PL industry is a dynamic environment with varying degrees of complexity, caused by multiple clients operating in one or more facilities. 3PL operators have the challenge of running a profitable business with a single set of tools, facilities, manpower and material handling equipment.
