Setting the Distance Type

The “Distance” tab allows you to control route optimization speed and quality.


There are three distance types you can choose from:

  1. Drive Time Optimization – Uses actual driving time and distances; it provides the most accurate distance estimation and optimization takes more time;
  2. Straight Line Optimization – Uses straight lines to get distances; optimization is faster;
  3. Big City Optimization – Uses an estimation of distances for grid organized cities; optimization is faster.

Use Route4Me as your final mile route optimization software that sets distance types

“Drive Time Optimization” is the recommended setting for the most route planning scenarios. It usually takes a few seconds for the optimization engine to optimize a route of around 50 stops. For larger routes of more than 100 stops, the optimization might take up to a few minutes.
