Prerequisite: orders, vehicles, and drivers are available on the dashboard.
Click the Optimise button below. The number of orders you have selected is also displayed on the button. Optionally, you may choose to override optimization settings in the Optimization form:
Click Continue to start the HERE Last Mile route planning. The time it takes to plan depends on a range of factors, including the number of orders, how many different time windows for orders need to be assessed, and how many different vehicle profiles are being used.
It is currently possible to optimize up to 1500 orders at one time. Should you have more than this number, please plan to enter them in batches.
HERE Last Mile optimizes for the most efficient operational cost. That is, if you select 10 vehicles, but the orders can be most efficiently delivered with eight of those, then eight routes are created. You can ‘force’ route creation for all vehicles by planning in smaller batches and selecting a smaller number of vehicles each time, so that a route is created for each vehicle.
