New Feature: Solve vehicle routing problems without knowing the actual start locations of the vehicles

You have orders, but don’t know where your drivers start from? We are happy to announce that you can now solve these kind of problems. Until now, you always had to think of some starting point, which in many cases led to suboptimal solutions. Now you can solve this problem detached from actual starting points.
If you want to solve this problem, you can now simply leave out the starting address of the vehicle. For example, the simplest vehicle specification can look like this:

{
   "vehicle_id": "driver-stefan"
}

That’s it. The optimizer now determines an efficient route based on the orders. The driver’s start and end points are determined accordingly by the optimizer.

Have fun optimizing!
