Paragon Software Systems’ Territory Optimizer enables transport planners to create territories with balanced workloads within distribution or service routes. Using this tool to pre-plan before running the routes and schedules through Paragon ensures compact delivery zones for efficient routing, which reduces transport costs, improves driver productivity, and advances customer service levels. If delivering to different customer areas on different days, the software can divide the delivery areas according to days of the week. This results in the desired number of zones with balanced workloads across the working week. The information is then input to the routing and scheduling system to optimize resources, routes and costs for each zone and day of the week.
