Now in place at three sites, the new Paragon-generated routes are resulting in cost savings. Consequently, AAH Pharmaceuticals is well on its way to exceeding its predicted annual transport cost saving of $1,000,000 by the end of the first quarter of 2003, which equates to a 10% reduction in fleet size.
"Paragon has enabled us to effectively re-evaluate our transportation operation with minimum fuss. We are already seeing huge cost savings which will only continue to increase as we roll out Paragon-calculated routes at additional sites. In addition, the accuracy of the Paragon routes has resulted in significant improvements in customer service - we are now able to guarantee customer delivery times to the nearest 15 minutes. Overall, Paragon has succeeded in making the rationalization of our longstanding fixed route network a straightforward and highly effective process." Steve Anderson, Organisation Manager, AAH Pharmaceuticals
