About HERE Tour Planning

Tour Planning is a REST API that is responsible for multi-vehicle route optimization. It provides a way to solve variations of the Vehicle Routing Problem. Customers can use it to plan their fleet of delivery or service vehicles while taking into account several constraints such as time windows, capacity, cost, maximum travel time/distance, driver breaks, etc. As a result, the API returns a cost-effective sequence (tours) to visit all the stops in the daily plan. Learn more about the product here:
