VRP - pickup quantity exceeds vehicle capacity

I want to do a routing for an incinerator and have different companies in the supply chain. Of course the amount of waste offered by a single company is exceeding the capacity of the truck. The result of that is that non of the locations with pickup quantities above the truck load is considered for the routing. In reality, it would be necessary that in a fleet of vehicles the waste supplied by one point is shared, or a single vehicle is routed until all the waste is picked up.

I there a way to do this?

GIS moved on and nobody needs a format consisting out of at least three files! No, nobody needs shapefiles, not even for the sake of an exchange format. Folks, use GeoPackage to exchange data with other GIS!

If you use one order to represent the whole waste pickup quantity, it won't work because the order quantity exceeds the vehicle capacity. You need to split it into multiple orders with each below the capacity of the vehicle so we can send multiple routes to do the pickup.
