Sequence post-optimization

If you use balancing with large penalties or geographic grouping with large global_proximity_factor values, you might receive routes that have an inefficient delivery sequence. To solve this problem, use the sequence post-optimization mode. You can enable sequence post-optimization by using the post_optimization option:

"options": {
    "post_optimization": true

If you enable this option, the algorithm will optimize the sequence for each individual route at the end of the planning task.

Example 1 (no post-optimization)

This example uses global_proximity_factor and the balancing option.

Example 2 (with post-optimization)

Same as example 1 but with the added post_optimization option. The result is lower total mileage and reduced time en route and in motion. Routes have become more predictable.
