Paragon plans for the Olympics

Dorking, UK: Paragon Software Systems has  updated its free special Planning Pack for companies scheduling deliveries  during the Olympic and Paralympic games.

The mapping update to the route  optimisation software  includes the latest traffic restriction information from  Transport for London (TfL) covering the Olympic Route Network (ORN) and the  Central London Zone (CLZ) and it will also highlight the impact of the various  road-based events.

The updated map and specially developed event  filters enable Paragon users to identify the location of their customers’  delivery points relative to the Olympic-related road restrictions and be kept  fully aware of road closures and other changes that will be in force during the  games.

The filters can be fine-tuned so that users can review their  customers’ delivery points to within 100 metres of the ORN or a road event,  enabling a clear and convenient view of how their deliveries will be impacted.

Many Paragon customers are in the process of planning their transport  strategy for the games.  This includes modelling routes and schedules that  will service the greater demand for consumables (FMCG) and for managing changes  to delivery times, unloading times and delivery frequency.
