Capacity limitation of receiving facilities

I am working with ArcGIS 10. I am working on a study that is about providing heat generation plants with forest harvest residues. I used the closest facility module in order to find the closest facility to the forest stands from which I will collect forest residues. I would like to take into account the capacity of my heat generation plants as well. That means that I cannot bring to them more forest residues that they can handle. I would like that the amount of forest residues that are left over (due to capacity limitations of the heat generation plants) are transported to a terminal. Is it possible to handle such a situation in Network Analyst and could you give me some hint of how?
