@Reis_6 what we have now are (truck) driving games, not logistic simulators. The whole cargo system needs an overhaul and the map should also had to change significantly for that shift to happen, independently if the game has or not multiplayer now or WoTr since a time ago.

Point is there was no reason to do that overhaul when the game lacked a lot of kind of industries or logistic connections (and still lacks several key ones). They keep adding that kind of things with every new map DLC, although there's some steps back too. For example, in Iberia they had added one specialized company hat only dispatch glass; a cargo that before was very rare to find and always without any context. Now if one wants to "role" to be a glass dispatcher, one knows where to go. But in other hand, the dispatch of fuel to petrol stations was lost after Italy DLC (I had hopes they add it to Germany once fully reworked, as its petrol stations company is defined as capable in the game files; but its not active).

In most cases what we have now is just a mix of companies in order to have variety of routes from, every source; but that doesn't reflect realistic logistic relationships and flows like there would be IRL.

At some point, hopefully they will finally address that part. In the meantime, pallets, packages... they are wildcards, cargoes that fit so many places that help them create routes. If we are talking about realism, I rather that kind of cargoes than deliver heavy haulage, bulk or tankers from/to a regular logistic warehouse suited to dispatch only paletized cargo.

I agree with you and believe that this part should be prioritized at some point in the development of the game or the improvement of Convoy.

I wonder if Morrelo being a staff member at Trucksbook means anything in connection with a similar functionality for WoTr…
I believe so... Perhaps morrelo has some 'finger' on the future logistics optimizations that will go in with the new multiplayer mode and World of Truck's integration...

@harishw8r, the Trucksbook is a ranking of km. In my point of view, in a rough comparison, it is like a World of Trucks event that happens all year long, monthly, where players compete to see who does more km... However, the ranking counts for company and player, in the speed categories (ETS2 0-100kmh/real, 100-180kmh/race and ATS 0-081mph real/081-112mph/race) and since January this year it counts with the category of just jobs from the World of Trucks, you can let the truck reach speeds higher than the indicated as real/race but being a WoTr job, it registers exclusively in the WoTr ranking...

I recommend you to register and read the Trucksbook website, it is very didactic and self explanatory.

@Graf_Boinenn I also believe that WoTr will be SCS gateway to try to bring logistics as close to real life as possible, mirroring a bit with what already exists in Trucksbook.

Congrats, you have played 416 full days of the 1966 days since ATS launch.

I think I haven't even worked as many hours since 2016 on my full time job, that's a crazy milestone to think someone played that much
