AgReliant Genetics, LLC, the Westfield, Indiana based corn and soybean seed company will use Paragon Integrated Fleets software to centralize planning of seed deliveries to customers throughout the Corn Belt states.
AgReliant Genetics selected the route optimization software after researching 20 other transportation management products and expects significant savings in mileage, emissions, and in administration time.
The software will optimize routing and scheduling of daily deliveries made by subcontractors, who each normally make four to five stops on their routes. During the company’s peak shipping period, this can involve up to 100 trucks. Therefore, improving delivery resource efficiency is an important goal for AgReliant Genetics.
Paragon has a clear process for planning deliveries with the ability to calculate multiple route options from which the team can choose the most cost-effective solution. If they have to make last-minute changes to routes, they know the software will recalculate and produce a new optimized route automatically, always ensuring efficient running.
“We bought Paragon because it has the ability to provide a better planning system and reduce the miles traveled to make each delivery. We expect a significant reduction in delivery miles this shipping season because of the new software.” Steve Thompson, Director of Information Technology, AgReliant Genetics
