Certain logistics companies do not calculate their costs according to the total distance travelled but according to the furthest point in the route.
In our problem, Vehicle Routing Problem do not really help as almost all of the cases, furthest point is always have less travel distance than the whole route.
Do you have any idea on how to tweak Network Analyst in ArcGIS, or know any open-source solution that I can solve this problem with?
Thanks a lot in advance,
As seen on the graphic above, it really does not matter how many points you stopped between start and end point. However, we still would have other constraints, such as travel time, vehicle capacity, multiple routes and depots.
