Include or exclude off-road segments in your optimization
Some locations may not be directly adjacent to a public, cartographed road. For instance rural addresses with long driveways or large industrial sites. To account for this, the segment between the public road and the location is added to the route. …
Arrive on the correct side of street
Having to cross a busy road is a time-consuming and often dangerous task. To avoid this, you may prefer to plan trips in such a way, that the vehicle arrives on the correct side of the road.
With the new matchSideOfStreet parameter, this is now possible in the Route Optimization API V1.10.1 and Sequence Optimization API V1.7.1.…
Code sample: Mixed loading prohibition
We have just published a new code sample demonstrating the use of mixed loading prohibitions in the Route Optimization API.
It allows you to play with incompatibilities between transports and see the effect it has on the optimized plan. Check it out right here.…
