“TRST has been a great addition to Exel Integrated Logistics Design Group’s tool set. It is the only standalone resource optimization tool that fits the requirements of many of our fleet solutions.
TRST is a user friendly, short learning curve program that produces excellent results. The resource balancing works extremely well to even the work requirements, in turn creating operationally effective equipment and driver schedules."
Director, Logistics Design
"In the Logistics department of a major Grocery Co-Op, we deliver over 400 routes a week and make around 1100 deliveries. We have been using Paradox's TRST tool to model the utilization of our equipment and Drivers for about 3 years. It has been instrumental in assisting us in minimizing the number of resources needed to run our day-to-day business. One of the problems that TRST helps us visualize is the peak time frames during the week where we need additional resources. By spreading out the peak volumes onto other days we are able to reduce the number of resources in our fleet.
We also use TRST when taking on new business; we run the new routes through TRST to determine how many resources it would add to assist us in determining the cost of the new business and the freight rates. The changes that you have made to model Over the Road and Local routes separately make it so we can model both of our fleet in one pass. I highly recommend TRST for companies looking to improve the management of and/or reduce the resources they use to deliver product."
