Paragon helps DHL cut fleet requirements

DHL Exel has opted for Paragon’s routing and scheduling system for its BP forecourt and convenience stores contract. In doing so the company has reduced its fleet requirements by 13 per cent. “Savings have been both immediate and substantial,” says Lee Sylvester, transport manager, “with a significant reduction in fleet usage, manpower and fuel impacting positively on our carbon footprint. In addition, BP has been impressed with the improved service levels we have been able to achieve as a result of implementing Paragon.”
The 3PL is also using Paragon to help integrate new out bases and store locations into a centralised route planning operation.
