Paragon’s Route Optimization Software Transforms Transportation Planning for FFE

FFE, one of the largest temperature-controlled LTL operators in the US, automates its planning process with Paragon’s route optimization software.

Operational efficiency is key to achieving efficient food distribution, maximum utilization of expensive assets and reliable customer service.

FFE service centers had limited visibility of the whereabouts of the tractor, trailer and driver resources as well as the arrival times of the line haul trucks.

The company implemented route optimization software to help it increase visibility and sales volumes, stick to promised window times and meet the needs of its customers.
