You could do it with process logic or with a custom object. But perhaps as easy approach is to add a second TransferNode (let's call it TransferNode1) at the output of each Server that has this behavior. Use a Link Selection Weight to force entities that need the Vehicle to go to TransferNode1, those that don't, proceed directly to their destination. At TransferNode1, you specify that it needs a vehicle.

If you post your problems in the Simio Insiders forums instead of the public forums then people can respond with models and pictures.
