Paragon plans for Olympic jams

Paragon, the routeing and scheduling software company, is offering software functionality to manage vehicle movements along traffic-disrupted routes during the London Olympic and Paralympic games.

This allows users to model how road closures, congestion and the increased demand for consumables will affect operations as well as consider how to handle changes to delivery times, unloading times and alterations in delivery frequency.

Using data recently supplied by Transport for London Paragon has developed functionality and prepared data files that can be used in a Paragon system. It also plans to include congestion data around the event start and finish times for each venue so users can automatically create delivery schedules taking account of the anticipated hold-ups.

“We are making these facilities available free of charge to all our existing users,” said Phil Ingham, Paragon support director.
