Yorkshire kitchen manufacturer Rixonway has invested in logistics software from Paragon Software Systems to optimise its delivery route planning. Using the software to model its routes automatically, Rixonway is aiming to reduce its delivery mileage by 1,400 miles a week and planning time by nine hours. With optimised routes, Rixonway will also reduce its carbon emissions significantly.
Rixonway will use Paragon Single Depot software at its Dewsbury headquarters to plan deliveries to housing association properties undergoing refurbishment. The company previously used an alternative planning system to plan all routes for its mixed fleet making multi-drop deliveries nationwide.
Nick Greenall, Operations Director said: "All our products are delivered by our own dedicated vehicle fleet, which enables the business to control the time that orders are delivered and allows stringent delivery schedules to be met. Paragon will help us become more efficient in our transport planning, which will undoubtedly further enhance our delivery service."
