- Fixed Cost is a cost you will incur every time this Driver/vehicle is utilized, regardless of the duration of service. It can be used to take into consideration administrative/maintenance overheads or a Driver's daily wages.
- Hourly Cost is used to compute the time-based cost of this Driver's Route.
- Per-mile Cost is the cost it takes to run this vehicle on a per-mile basis.
When assigning Orders to different Drivers, the Viamente Route Planner keeps the Total Working Costs (depending on Driving Time, Service Time, Idle Time in case of Time Windows) to a minimum. The software considers all the possible variables and the impact deriving from choosing for service one Driver/vehicle over another.
Please note that like all other Driver Settings, Costs can be assigned/modified from under the tab My Fleet or from under the Route Plans tab (by clicking on the Driver's name in the lower part of the screen).
Remember that if you change a Driver’s settings from the tab My Fleet, the new settings will be applied to all future Route Plans whenever this Driver is utilized. If you only need to modify settings only for a specific Route Plan, you need to do it from the tab Route Plans.
