How To Use Vehicle Service Radius To Control The Assigning Of Stops To Vehicle

Depot is your starting location or warehouse for route planning, and every vehicle in ElasticRoute is assigned to a depot.

This Vehicle Service Radius can be used to control the assigning of stops to your vehicle, by preventing stops that are too far away from the depot to be assigned to the vehicle.
