How To Set Buffer For Your Deliveries

To improve the accuracy of the planning, you may define the Buffer to account for the traveling time between your stops.

The higher the Buffer, the longer the time taken to travel between the stops, leading to the increase in Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA).

The following example will compare and show the effect of setting up a buffer time to increase the traveling times between your stops.

How To Set Up

  1. Navigate to Settings > General.
  2. Enter the value into the Buffer field.
