 Have you ever wondered which calculation model to choose in ANT-Logistics: per kilometers or per money ? In this article, we describe calculation models and their using. There are two calculation models in ANT-Logistics: - per km – this value is set by default. The calculation model "per km" is used when the selection of optimal routes must be carried out according to the minimum mileage and route duration. - per money - is used when the tariffing of cars is applied. The selection of optimal routes in this case is carried out according to the principle: the cheapest route is the most optimal. The "recalculation per money" model is also useed to calculate route profitability . Let us give you someexamples of the using different calculation models.Prepare the data for the generating of routes.

To do this, you need to select one of the moved points 1 (in this example TPT 9) , click on the button in the form of a lock 2 and select Capture the point  3 : This point (as well as all other points that are above the fixed one) will be fixed (highlighted in gray).
