Adjust Directions Optimization

Route4Me provides multiple route optimization settings that allow you to apply extra layers of time and distance constraints to your multi stop routes. You can plan routes that will be optimized for the shortest possible traveling time or the shortest distance while avoiding or allowing particular road types like paid toll roads and highways. Optimizing your routes to avoid tolls and highways while also applying other advanced driving direction constraints enables you to get the most efficient and optimal results with your current fleet of vehicles, the skills of your drivers, as well as fleet capacity and availability.

 

 

To plan routes with the Directions optimization constraints, first, go to Plan New Route from the navigation menu. Next, select one of the preferred route data import methods (Interactive Map EditorCopy-and-PasteUpload a FileImport Data, or Upload Scan(s)).
