Benefits of Paragon’s route planning software to Food Distributors recognized
Paragon Software Systems announces it has been included in the Food Logistics 100+ Software and Technology providers list for 2018. The 2018 recipients will be showcased in the November/December issue of Food Logistics magazine.
A popular choice for the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR), Wholesale Grocery and Food Distribution sectors, Paragon’s customers include Martin Brower, Anderson-DuBose, Colorado Boxed Beef Co., Nogales Produce Inc., Frozen Food Express, Southeastern Food Merchandisers and many others in the United States, Canada and around the world.
“The digital supply chain continues its rapid emergence, bringing with it expanded capabilities that impact visibility, security, compliance and efficiency,” remarked Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director for Food Logistics and its sister publication, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Every aspect of the global food supply chain stands to benefit from new and innovative software and technology that is fundamentally changing the global food supply chain.”
“We are honored to be recognized for the role we play in the Food Distributor sector,” said Paragon CEO, William Salter. “Food and beverage suppliers and 3PLs that specialize in this industry need technology partners that will allow them to meet the demands of this fast-moving market. Smaller, more frequent deliveries and a trend towards more fresh-not-frozen food all place extra pressure on the last mile operation. Juggling multi-stop delivery schedules, diverse delivery requirements, rising fuel costs and the driver shortage while meeting time-sensitive delivery windows makes food distribution a more complex task that it has ever been before.”
