In this article, you will learn about the Nextmv and Onfleet integration.
Nextmv is a developer platform for automating and optimizing decisions that drive business operations — from vehicle routing to workforce scheduling and more. With Nextmv's flexible APIs, developers can quickly build, test, and deploy decision engines in modern technology stacks at speed and scale.
The Nextmv/Onfleet integration uses the Nextmv Cloud API to create assignments for Onfleet. The integration pulls workers (drivers) and tasks (stops) from Onfleet, creates optimal routes with Nextmv, and defines assignments for workers to be passed back to Onfleet.
Note: Nextmv will not push any information to the Onfleet API. The integration is read-only. Onfleet is considered to be the source of truth for tasks (stops) and workers (drivers).
This integration is helpful for organizations that want the ability to configure additional capacity, break times, target time windows, early/late/unassigned penalties to stops, route limits (such as distance or duration limits per vehicle/driver), value functions, etc to their routes on Onfleet. The Nextmv integration is also useful for integrating multiple pick-ups and drop-offs within a singular route; at the moment, the in Route Optimization feature in Onfleet only a drop-off task assigned to one pick-up task will be considered when assigning tasks to a driver.
If you are running into any errors with your Onfleet integrations please feel free to reach out to the Onfleet Support Team. We strongly recommend reaching out to the Nextmv support team as well, since some issues may be originating on the partner's end and Onfleet is unable to view activity on third-party integrations.
