A route matrix contains a matrix of information for recommended routes between multiple start and end points, including distance and estimated arrival times.
You can use a route matrix to help you choose the best combinations of origins and destinations based on your business needs, such as the following use cases:
Find the best warehouses from which to send out deliveries.
Match the closest suitable vehicle to make a pick-up or drop-off request.
