- Downtime statistics
Downtime occurs when a courier spends a long time in one place instead of moving along the planned route. This usually means there's a problem, which can lead to delays or losses.
There are different types of downtime:
- Outside of location
A long stop between two locations on a route (such as a depot and a delivery address).
- At location
A long unplanned stop at a delivery location, depot, or other location along a route.
Period before downtime begins

This method is related to how the estimated time of arrival (ETA) is calculated:
Downtime detection begins as soon as the courier arrives at the delivery location.
When the courier arrives, downtime begins when the handling time
service_duration_sand the period before downtime begins
idle_time_window_shave passed, even if the order time window hasn't ended yet.
Downtime doesn't begin before the order time window starts. Time when the courier is idle while waiting for the order time window to begin isn't taken into account.
If the courier arrives before the delivery time window starts, then downtime begins after the order time window begins and after the handling time and the period before downtime begins
If the courier arrives after the delivery time window starts, then downtime begins when the handling time and the period before downtime begins

This way, you can see where the courier is and how much time they spend at every location on the route.
Using the time the last coordinates were sent, the logistics coordinator can determine whether a courier is having connection issues and contact them if necessary.
You can find information about downtime on completed routes in the Courier performance report in the Downtime outside of location and Downtime at location fields.
