Ramps in warehouses: how to account for the simultaneous loading of vehicles

When optimizing logistics, it is very important to create conditions for prompt shipment of goods in a car. But how to prevent a long queue of cars and ensure the continuity of the load ?     To solve this problem, ANT-Logistics released a new functionality - taking into account the capacity of the warehouse for simultaneous loading of cars. Let's go to the  Directory Warehouses . Double-click on the required warehouse to open Editing record. In the  General tab , in the field  Number of ramps  select the required value (when the value is  Auto , the parameter is not taken into account in the calculation).

Next, in the tab  Working time , in the field  Load time , enter the time required to load one car (in minutes). It is necessary to "allow" the car to arrive later - we go to the  Directory Vehicles , select the car and in the window  Editing record  go to the tab  Work

Delivery priorities from A to Z

There are several types of priority settings: Priority of geo-zones; Priority of groups of pointts; Priority of an individual point in the order.

You can set or use p riority  only  one of the settings or a combination of them. 2. While setting the point priority, it is necessary to foiiow the principle - the higher  value of  the point priority is the more important to visit it (100-99-98...3-2-1-0). 3. If you do not set a point priority value, then such points will have a priority value ''Auto''. These points can be anywhere along the route. 4. If a point has one priority by geo-zone, and another by the group of points it belongs to, it
