Paragon helps drive Argos Direct home

Argos Direct, the home shopping arm of the high street retailer, has selected Paragon’s Multi Depot routeing and scheduling software as part of a drive to improve its transport planning capability.

Argos’ home delivery service comprises some 550 vehicles making 15,000 deliveries each day from 30 depots across the UK. Following extensive testing, the Paragon Multi Depot solution was rolled out to all depots between July-November 2005.

Paragon says that driver productivity and vehicle utilisation have been closely monitored delivering significant benefits, including; improved miles per drop, hours per drop and vehicle utilisation.
