LF&E Refrigerated Transport has deployed new Paragon routing and scheduling software to support its nationwide growth.
The business provides specialist temperature-controlled logistics services in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors and is reporting growing demand for its services.
LF&E, which runs a fleet of 40 refrigerated vans and a team of 55 full-time drive, has used Paragon’s routing and scheduling software for the past two years to provide daily transport plans and has now adopted Paragon Multi Depot to support the planned opening of a further MRHA-approved warehouse facility in Northampton later this year.
“We work with some of the largest pharmaceutical, medical, healthcare and clinical trial organisations in both the private and public sectors, so it is essential our capabilities meet strict regulatory requirements,” said Jason Buckley, managing director at LF&E Refrigerated Transport. “In addition, service excellence is vitally important to our reputation and the growth of our business. Paragon’s routing and scheduling software ensures we provide our customers with on-time deliveries and effective communications, while being able to control costs and grow our service capabilities.”
LF&E is also using Paragon’s routing and scheduling software as a strategic modelling tool to make informed decisions about the location of new sites.
“Maximising use of our vehicles and drivers is critical to the efficiency of our operation, but the nature of the work means we also need to be able to factor in longer visits for certain visits or patients. The flexibility of Paragon’s routing and schedule software allows us to achieve this essential balance between operational excellence and duty of care,” added Buckley.
