Setting conditions for the best path

You may want to set some conditions in your search for the best path between any two or more points on the map.

To do that, in the Directions panel click the Options button at the top:

A panel will pop up, in which you will be able to establish several conditions that the path must comply with.

Parameter Explanation
Avoid highways Indicates that the calculated route should avoid major highways, if possible.
Reorder waypoints to optimize route To optimize the path, Frotcom is authorized to reorder all way-points. The start and end points will not be reordered though
Avoid tolls Indicates that the calculated route should avoid toll roads, if possible.
Vehicle profile The travel time will consider the settings you entered in Administration > Account > Directions, for each vehicle class. For instances, heavy vehicles have a lower maximum velocity allowed, in general, than light vehicles.
Use driving time restriction rules Select Yes if you want the maximum driving time restrictions defined in Administration > Account > Driving conditions to be considered in the calculation of each trip’s duration and estimated time of arrival. These restrictions are used, for instance in Europe (regulation EC561) to limit the driving times of each driver.
Use

If you decide to use driving time restriction rules, as described above, you can now select between two options:

  • No driving time from vehicle/driver
    The current driving times of the driver in the vehicle to which the trip will be assigned, will not be taken into account when applying Driving time restriction rules. Instead, each trip will begin considering that the associated driver starts the trip with 0 hours of driving time consumed.

  • Use vehicle/driver current driving time
    In this case the current driving times of the driver in the vehicle to which the trip will be assigned, will be taken into account when applying Driving time restriction rules.

After you make your choice of parameters, make sure to Apply. The best path will now respect your new requirements.
