The Vehicle Type feature can be used for special requirements of your deliveries. You may assign the same Vehicle Type tag to both the vehicles and stops. During planning, the stops would be assigned to the tagged vehicle.
If you happen to be delivering cold items, e.g. ice cream, and only vehicles equipped with a fridge can perform the delivery, you may tag both the stops and vehicles with the Fridge vehicle tag, and the stop would be assigned to the tagged vehicle accordingly.
