I know this is a few years old, but i also have the same problem.
I have a waste pickup truck that starts/returns at "Depot A". Depot A is a truck depot - it is not an unloading site. It is only where the truck is parked.
I have established a Route Renewal site and associated it with the truck - this is the only location the waste can be unloaded.
However, after the last visit to the Route Renewal site, the VRP solver continues to pick up waste and takes it to Depot A on it's way back.
ESRI explains this here
From: ArcGIS Desktop Help 9.3 - Solving a vehicle routing problem:
"For a route that has renewal visits, only the pickup orders after the last renewal visit are unloaded at the end depot"
So, there is no parameter for Depot Capacity for a Vehicle Routing Problem. This is a shame and I don't understand why.
If there was, I could set it to zero, and Depot A would not be unloaded at.
If anybody has a work-around, would love to hear your ideas!
