How to create routes with multiple start addresses

We currently support one start address for all routes but if you need to plan a number of routes and have a number of different starting locations, you can do that as well.
Follow these steps:

  1. Add your starting locations as regular addresses within your address list.
  2. Import your list to our Route Planner, leaving the start address field empty.

  4. Set the number of routes you need (to match the number of start addresses you entered).
  5. Select a starting location and manually move it to be the start address of the closest route.

  7. Repeat step #4 for each of your starting locations.
