Linde Group is deploying Paragon routing and scheduling software in 50 countries
around the world. This major roll out extends Linde’s use of Paragon for managing the
distribution of industrial and therapeutic gases globally. With Paragon automating and
optimising the routes and schedules, Linde customers can place orders for next day
delivery. Linde has demonstrated that the software has improved customer service levels,
particularly with critical deliveries, and is enabling operational savings worldwide.
The Linde Group is a world-leading gases and engineering company with around 49,100
employees working in more than 100 countries worldwide. In the 2010 financial year, it
achieved sales of 12.868 billion euro.
The software licence extension builds on a major deployment of Paragon announced in
March 2010, which saw Linde operations in Europe, the Nordic regions and Australia and New
Zealand implement Paragon for transport planning, including daily dynamic routing.
Martyn Stretch, Global Transport Manager for Linde’s cylinder business says:
“Paragon is the routing software of choice for Linde cylinder business globally. It is
integral to the efficiency of our gas cylinder business and we have proven that the
software is the best choice for producing optimised delivery routes and schedules. With
this new licence, we now have the opportunity to roll out the software to all our sites
worldwide from centrally hosted servers within our IS network and accessed through a
Citrix link. Paragon has proven to be a reliable supplier and has been supportive to our
goal of continually improving our gas delivery operations.
“The new licence gives our logistics teams around the world the ability to use and
benefit from Paragon’s superior transport planning capabilities, which ultimately will
boost service levels. With so many of our sites worldwide now using Paragon software, we
have full confidence in the system and can vouch for the company’s support during
implementation and afterwards, together with the excellent training it provides,” he adds.
Paragon is currently supporting the roll out of software to Poland, Argentina, Brazil,
Malaysia and Chile, with further installations in the Baltics, South Africa, Hong Kong and
Benelux coming in early 2012.
