Logistics companies rarely have a completely identical fleet of vehicles. At the same time, the cost of one delivery directly depends on the fuel consumed, the cost of owning the vehicle, courier wage and etc.
In order to optimize the cost per delivery and first of all to distribute orders among the vehicles with the lowest cost per one delivery, we have added the option "Cost of service".
Now, before planning the route, you can specify the value of the
service cost for each vehicle. It is understood that the higher this value, the more expensive it is to provide services with this vehicle.
Thus, the optimization algorithm will first try to distribute orders among of the vehicles for which the lowest value is set.
This option also useful when together with your owned fleet you
involve to delivery process 3PL service providers.
