    Transportation Resource:

    Resource used in Supply Network Planning( OPT and heuristics) and is same as the bucket resource. It has its own resource

    type in SAP liveCache.It differs from the bucket resource inthe scheduling of requirements on the resource.

    Vehicle Resource:

    Resource that is used in the Transportation Planning/Vehicle Scheduling (TP/VS) component

    Vehicle resources map the capacity and availability of vehicles that you want to use for transportation.

    You cannot define the available capacity for this resource type dependent on time.However, you can define a time-dependent availability using shift sequences.

    Further details from Help library.

    Thanks,
