Costs; costs that vary based on loading, vehicle type, and distance.

Warehouse Locations and Inventory Levels; Distance of the warehouses from the customer and their inventory levels of ordered items are crucial to determine the warehouse from which the items will be shipped.

Vehicle Types; Aspects such as volumes and carrying capacities of the vehicles and whether they are equipped with a freezer or not are the factors that determine the vehicle onto which the order will be loaded.

Locations; the distance between the warehouse and customer locations is the primary issue in route planning.
