Can anyone help me figure out how buffering truck stations with containers helps with max round trip time, if at all. I am confused by the math behind it. Truck stations move resources by stack per minute, limited by vehicle capacity and itestack size. Containers are based on items per minute limited by belt size. Should you buffer at the loading or unloading location?
My main question is as follows: does this practice replace extra trucks on the same route. If container buffering does not help with round trip time, why do people do it?
I love trucks and want to maximize their effectiveness. Thanks for any insight.
