I'm working with a Project for optimizing retrieval of garbage. We have two trucks. Truck 1 load the garbage at the side of the truck while truck 2 load the load at the back. That means that truck 1 only can empty the bins standing at the right side of the road wilde truck 2 can empty bins on both left and right side of the road. How can i manage that in NetworkAnalyst?

I will defer to the wisdom of those that have done it before, but I would think "curb approach" would be option to consider first

I have only find the option to specify curb approach on the order and not on the route. Before I have made the analysis, I can't know which truck that will empty which bin. Is there any way to specify "curb approach" for each truck, or make this in Another way?

Oh... I have only seen it done the other way around... pick the truck, then determine the path which of course is totally appropriate for non-divided highways etc etc but less perhaps more optimal in housing developments where a rear-loading truck allows for both side pickup.  As I said, I will defer, although they use right-side pickup in my area where the houses are further apart on both sides of the road and the driveways are offset.

Dan is correct that the Curb Approach settings are the way to control which side of the road a vehicle can stop on.  However, at this time, Curb Approach settings can be configured only for the orders, not for the vehicles.
