Upgrade to vehicle routing system to help drive firm’s growth

National warehousing, transport and logistics firm the NX Group is boosting its systems with a significant investment on cutting edge routing and scheduling software from experts Paragon. 

The Crick-based company, which recently increased the size of its vehicle fleet and took on half a dozen new drivers, expects the new system to improve its operational efficiency, better utilising its expanding fleet and ensuring more reliability for clients.

Peter Connolly, IT and Project Manager for the NX Group, who is working to integrate Paragon’s software with the company’s existing systems, said:

“The new software from Paragon will make better use of our growing team, and provide more structure to our delivery plans.

“It will also provide multiple plans for different scenarios, giving us delivery options we may not have otherwise considered before, and opening the door to more opportunities for collections and deliveries for our customers.” 

William Salter, Managing Director of Paragon Software Systems, said:

“Paragon’s route optimisation software is designed to help transport operations improve efficiency, minimise costs and meet the continued demand for a better customer service.

“The NX Group is a great example of what can be achieved with tangible benefits experienced across the operation as a result of automating the transport planning process.”
