Can a phone call, a video conference, or some other means of communication make the journey unnecessary?

Is the journey best made by road?

What type of roads will be used?

Can vehicles and therefore the driving be shared?

How long is the working day?

Is it appropriate to have a long drive, followed by a full day of work, and then a long drive home?

Is an overnight stop more appropriate?

What time of day will the journey be made?

Is the expectation of travelling time realistic?

Is a driver being expected to make to visit to many locations in a day?

Is there sufficient time available for breaks?
