DIBS Distribution is deploying Paragon’s real-time delivery management system to enhance customer service and reduce transport costs.
The routeing and scheduling optimisation system will integrate with Navman Wireless satellite vehicle tracking to provide live fleet activity information via Paragon’s Fleet Controller option.
Lee Payne, transport manager for DIBS said: “It will allow us to optimise our routes and delivery schedules for each week and the addition of Fleet Controller’s vehicle tracking and text messaging facilities will give us the ability to provide our customers with accurate ETAs for their deliveries.”
DIBS specialises in frozen and ambient food delivery. It runs a fixed-route operation, adding new customers on an ongoing basis. Paragon will automate the planning of the routes and allow periodic re-planning every few months to maximise efficiencies. The integration with the satellite vehicle tracking system should allow fine tuning of the routes.
