Glanbia cutsmileage with Paragon


Glanbia, the global dairy business group, is cutting 106,000 km a year from its delivery vehicle routes by using Paragon’s transport software to plan its deliveries.

It reckons the routing software is also improving vehicle utilisation by 15 per cent and reducing the annual number of routes by 10 per cent.

Denis Conway, national logistics manager Glanbia Consumer Foods Ireland says: “Paragon is a very powerful strategic tool. It allows us to test all potential delivery scenarios offline without affecting our real world routes. Using the routes designed by Paragon we can easily recognise where improvements can be made and implement them.”
