Gregory opts for Paragon down South

Gregory Distribution has implemented Paragon’s latest routeing and scheduling software, Integrated Fleets, in a bid to win new business.
The route planning software will be used by Gregory’s business development team, from its Cullompton distribution centre, in Devon.
It will aid the company’s vehicles transporting grocery products, milk, raw materials, consumer goods, and industrial items, throughout the UK and Europe.
The system includes HERE street level mapping, and INRIX-based road speed data, which Paragon says improves both the system’s functionality and accuracy.
Gregory hopes the software will enable vehicles and drivers at multiple sites to be treated as a single integrated transport resource.
“We chose Paragon Integrated Fleets as it provides the ideal tools to test ‘what if’ scenarios for both single- and multi-depot operations, which is essential in both winning new business and delivering further efficiencies to our existing customers,” said general manager, business development, at Gregory Distribution, Gavin Haines.
