Building Type Database With Additional Service Time Route Planning

Depending on your specific business requirements, you may need to visit and service multiple customers in the same building. Accordingly, the driver or courier may have to go to different floors in the same building, so the service time for visiting and servicing each customer will increase accordingly. Route4Me’s Building Type Database contains data on millions of buildings, including their respective floor counts. Route4Me’s Route Optimization Software will automatically analyze each address and location, determine the number of floors in each building, and add the necessary additional Service Time to each stop and order.

Automatically add service time to route stops based on address building type and number of floors using Route4Me's Last Mile Route Optimization Software.

NOTE: The Building Type Database and Service Time Routing feature is currently not available and will be available soon. Additionally, the current feature version supports a limited number of cities, and new cities can be added on request.
