ElasticRoute allows the users to select the starting and ending depots locations for your vehicles to follow in a directed path for your run.
This feature is useful in instances where
- you wish to optimize your run to collect goods from a certain starting location, and drop off the goods along the way till the vehicle reach another location; or
- you wish to optimize your run to collect goods from various locations till they reach a desired depot to offload the goods; or
- you wish to optimize your run for the vehicle to end at certain location (e.g driver heading home)
Note: Whenever the end depot is selected, the “Return to depot" will be deactivated automatically.
