When a order has pickup quantities over then the maximum capacities, the expectation solution is to assign more than one vehicle.  Then how to set the parameters to achieve it?

Currently, I got a violated constraints of capacities exceeded.

One of the assumptions that is made in the VRP Solvers is that a customer's demand can be completely accommodated by a single vehicle.  So to be able to send more than one vehicle to a single customer you will need to break up that customer's order into two or more depending on how big the demand is.  Say you have a customer quantity of 1000 but your trucks can only carry 800.  Make two orders at the same location with one having a quantity of 800 and the other with 200.
