on the paths that
- Paths - (Only Fixed delivery

has no paths leading to and from it, it will not be serviced,
i.e. to properly
generate a delivery route, the Paths
table must contain
records allowing a vehicle to set off from a DC, reach the

Make sure that the Paths
table contains the following type of records:
- Site to Customer
