Paragon Software Systems Inc has added the Dispatch Smoothing feature to its transportation routing software to prevent bottlenecks in warehouse dispatch. Dispatch Smoothing enables companies to balance logistics and warehousing operations by optimizing workflows that improve efficiency and reduce cost by ensuring that all available resources are used effectively.
Routing and scheduling optimization software, for example, lets the user plan the optimal number of loads for dispatch so a warehouse can easily cope with demand. The software does this by controlling the outbound profile of loads dispatching from the warehouse and automating the scheduling of trucks. Departures within a given period thus are achievable using the available warehouse resourcesópeople, loading bays, and equipment. This Dispatch Smoothing functionality, therefore, optimizes route schedules so available resources are not overburdened while maintaining customer service excellence.
Logistics companies and transportation departments select Paragonís Windows-based software to computerize their transport planning, letting them create optimized routes and schedules automatically. The software enables all types of transportation planning, including dynamic and fixed routes and schedules, as well as strategic modeling.
