Logistics app - Important factor to be aware of

Topic: Logistics app - Important factor to be aware of

Hello Gurtam friends,
We confirmed an important factor concerning Logistics app that you should be aware.  We had assumed, as I think others might that without warehouse parameter selected, routes would be created and vehicles automatically  assigned based upon closest vehicle.  This is not the case.  When testing with a small number of vehicles and orders it may seem like it is assigning to closest vehicle, but we confirmed it is random. This is an important point to be aware of when talking with customers that may expecting such functionality. We are told this feature will be added at some point in the future.

Re: Logistics app - Important factor to be aware of

Logistics is one of the most important factors of supply chain management. It is the basic factor of success for each company and evolves in all the operations happen in the business. By the cargo volumes grow and transportation becomes more difficult; the requirement of logistics is rising.

Hello support- can you share any planned updates, in particular assigning to closest vehicle?

hello, everybody - that is planned as a part of Logistics but currently we cannot share any estimation on this. When we talk about planning it is important to think of something that is coming in future and not about something right at the moment - that is why that was not considered on the first run of the optimising mechanism. Greg, we spoke at telematics and believe me - your proposal is not forgotten and will be in the app. Just follow update notes - BTW next release is coming in few days.
