Paragon Software Systems has introduced a special Dispatch Smoothing feature to its transportation routing software. The feature is designed to prevent bottlenecks in warehouse dispatch.
Transportation plans often fail to take into account the capabilities of warehouse resources and their availability. Dispatch Smoothing enables companies to balance logistics and warehousing operations.
The routing and scheduling optimization software, for example, makes it possible to plan the optimal number of loads for dispatch so that the warehouse can easily cope with the demand. The software does this by controlling the outbound profile of loads dispatching from the warehouse and automating the scheduling of trucks, so that departures within a given period are achievable using the available warehouse resources, including people, loading bays, and equipment. The Dispatch Smoothing functionality optimizes the route schedules so that available resources are not overburdened while maintaining customer service excellence.
