Software automates Olympic delivery routes

Mar 05, 2012
Paragon's Software is designed to help keep users' deliveries in London up to speed by identifying likely areas of congestion during the Olympics.

Software from Paragon Software Systems is providing transport operators with the ability to manage vehicle movements along traffic-disrupted routes during the London Olympic and Paralympic games. 


The software models how road closures, congestion and the increased demand for consumables will affect operations as well as consider how to handle changes to delivery times, unloading times and alterations in delivery frequency. The system is likely to be particularly useful for companies making regular deliveries to London addresses such as crate hire companies and baggage shippers.

With the start of the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics less than six months away Paragon Software Systems is keen to help its clients minimise likely disruption to any London logistics operations. Using data recently supplied by Transport for London Paragon has developed functionality and prepared data files that can be used in a Paragon system. As a result users can tackle issues such as identifying delivery points that may be affected and understand where the likely areas of congestion will be.  For example, users can easily identify which of their customers are likely to be affected by a specific event such as the cycle road race.  It is also possible to identify and exclude those sections of the Olympic Route Network likely to affect their delivery operations so that delivery vehicles avoid them on the day. 
 
Paragon will soon also include congestion data around the event start and finish times for each venue so users can automatically create delivery schedules taking account of the anticipated hold-ups.
