Paragon encourages transport planners to get smarter with Smarter Maps

Oct 9, 2015 -- Paragon is encouraging transportation planners to get more out of their plan with a suite of smarter mapping products designed to add greater precision to transport plans.  Paragon’s Street Level Mapping, Average Road Speed Data and Truck Attribute Data all provide planners with a highly detailed picture of the road network, allowing planners to develop more accurate and realistic plans faster, reducing mileage and fuel costs and improving the accuracy of delivery times.

“When producing a transport plan, customers want to get as close as possible to reality,” said William Salter, Managing Director, Paragon Software Systems. “Detailed data including the average road speeds attainable on a specific route, or weight, height, width and length data overlaid on a map, all help the planner to quickly and easily build feasible routes with more accurate arrival times, resulting in happier customers and drivers alike.”

Paragon’s Smarter Maps include detailed mapping data that is used to automatically calculate delivery routes.  The three Smarter Mapping components are:

Paragon Street Level Mapping - includes all residential streets and minor roads, as well as turn restrictions, e.g. no left or right turn. Schedules can be planned to the nearest second and metre. This Smarter Mapping option is ideal for improving routing and optimising schedules in dense urban transport operations, such as those found in the home delivery sector.

Paragon Average Road Speed Data - improves the precision of routing and scheduling with a truer reflection of the real travel times. It provides a calculated average speed in each direction on all road links for which there is sufficient speed data, based on analysis of billions of road speed observations.

Paragon Truck Attribute Data - helps prevent detours and reduces mileage. It streamlines the creation of cost effective, feasible transport plans that avoid truck restrictions. Examples include physical height, weight, width and length information for primary, main and some secondary road networks, and the automatic calculation of transport plans that avoid low bridges when using high vehicles.

Customers using these services have found that the number of vehicles can be reduced while still making the same number of deliveries, driver shifts per day are decreased, and hours on duty can be reduced. “By reducing mileage and providing more accurate plans, drivers find that the transport plans created with these modules are much more achievable, and allow them to more readily meet their customer service goals,” added Salter.
