Paragon Software Systems, Inc, a leader in vehicle routing and scheduling optimization solutions, announces that long-time customer, National Food Corporation has received extensive benefits from the deployment of Paragon’s routing and scheduling solutions. National Food Corporation (NFC), a leading egg producer and processor in North and Midwest America and the Pacific Rim, uses Paragon’s solutions to lower transportation spend, improve efficiencies, and increase productivity.
“The combination of Paragon Multi Depot and Integrated Fleets software has proven to be the ideal solution to automate planning and optimize transportation from our distribution centers,” said Kevin Bookey, Transportation Manager, National Food Corporation. “Now one person is able to plan up to 50 complex routes per day for the 2,500 deliveries we make a week.”
“National Food Corporation is leading its industry with transportation cost savings from using optimized planning and scheduling,” said William Salter, CEO, Paragon Software Systems. “Paragon’s Multi Depot solution looks at NFC’s operations holistically, selecting the best distribution center for each delivery, which further reduces their overall mileage, drivers’ time, and asset usage.”
For food and beverages distributors serving retail or foodservice outlets, driving productivity through efficient distribution is critical for success. Whether supplying stores or restaurants and cafeterias, customers rely on accurate and timely delivery of goods. With demanding delivery schedules, the key to generating repeat business for distributors like NFC lies with streamlined delivery operations that use optimized plans to increase on-time performance, minimize delays, and boost efficiency.
