VRP - returning to depot every 8 hours?

Hi there. Given 24 depots and 500 orders, I'd like to find out how long it would take to visit all of them. The vehicle constraint I would like to have is that they can be on the road for a total of 8 hours (including travel and service time) and must return to the depot before heading out for the next set of visits. So the full route would be a series of 8 hour loops and the total time would be the sum of those loops. I was initially thinking about them having to take an hour break every 8 hours but it doesn't seem like I can specify that the break has to occur at the start location. Or that the range of the vehicle is a total of 8 hours before having to return to the start location to "recharge". Any thoughts on how to accomplish this? The way I'm currently going about this is manually creating multiple routes each with an 8 hour max. Thanks.
