Route profitability %
« on: January 07, 2020, 04:22:14 am »
Hi there,
I'm new player and got my fleet going and expanding. For me (isn't it for all?) it's important to follow up route profitability.
But as there are different kind of routes current route revenue in $ and profit in $ are not too good figures.

What I do is sort by profit and the lowest profit routes are monitored more closely. Now, while having 10 routes I still
easily see what happens with each route. But route profitability % would make much more sense! Then sorting out
by that and say less than 10% or 15% routes need actions or at least check what is going on there.

I think it would be very easy to add profit % column to route window?
Of course, like in normal business, change trends in profitability are actually the key figures (10 week trend, one year trend etc)
but getting them to routes might not be relevant at this point :)

Thanks!

Welcome to the game Sami :)

Indeed profitability is an important figure!

The existing route coloring in the map is already done according to profitability - greener the route more profitable it is (or red as the opposite)

It is indeed quite easy to add that to the existing route listing, the current concern tho, is that the # of columns in that table are already using most of the width, adding more fields could further cramp that table.

I personally sort routes based on revenue first and then go down the number (i have hundreds of route), the one that are less profitable (% wise) would kinda stand out as the "profit" column is expected to be in descending order too (if profitability % is similar), so if i see any of them out of line then i will try to do adjustments :)

That being said, adding profitability could still be possible with some UI tricks, one that i could think of is a toggle that add a # overlay to the rows or color code the routes. I will think about that thanks :)
