SimpliRoute calculated your routes and displayed you the result, now you are in Step 3. Excellent! You can check the results and do the changes you want. We are going to focus in this section on what SimpliRoute has produced in detail.

The map

The map is your firstroute preview. You will see in distinct colors each one of your vehicles with the visit order they have to follow starting from the warehouse.

In grey you will see the unassigned visits. They are points which could not be assigned to any route. This can occur for several reasons, either because the vehicle loads were not sufficient or because it is not possible to visit these clients during the time windows you entered or because the vehicles with the needed skills are not available or because of a mix of all the previous reasons. Do not worry, you can move manually these orders to any route or decide what to do with them.

If you click on any visit on the map you will be able to see more information related to this order such as the visit hour and the vehicle supposed to transport the load.

The indicators

In the upper part of the screen you will see indicators summarizing the routes you just finished to create. The indicators show you:

  • Used vehicles: it shows you how many vehicles you are using and which percentage of your fleet total it represents.
  • Created routes: it indicates the created route quantity. SimpliRoute allows vehicles to do more than one route a day, if there is enough time, so that you could have more routes than vehicles. More information in the Example: routes with several trips article.
  • Average load: it indicates the average load delivered for all the routes. ADVANCED: if you click on the average load arrow on the right, you can see the average load statistic for Loads 2 and 3.
  • Average time: average time of the vehicles in the street.
