DirectRoute 23.1 General Release should now be available to all customers on Client Center.

New Features

Transportation Modeler has been enhanced with two new violation types:
  • Max Empty Miles:  Either of the parameters, Private Fleet Max Empty Miles or Empty Miles Percent, are violated or would be violated by a specific routing action.

  • Prevent Loading Pickup After Delivery On TL Routes: For TL assets, a second shipment was placed on a route that was intended to be one-way.
