DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2015) - Paragon Software Systems, Inc., a leader in vehicle routing and scheduling optimization solutions announces winning a Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The company was chosen because fleet operators can typically reduce the size of their truck fleet by up to 20 percent with Paragon's solutions, which lower fuel usage and mileage, benefitting individual organizations and the environment as a whole.
