This report is used for the preselection of distances and durations from the geographical information system (GIS). You can use it to significantly increase the access speed to applications.

You should use preselection if you want to use exact GIS distances and durations for generated transportation lanes within transportation zones (TP/VS). Otherwise, the system only calculates the line of flight distance because a direct access to GIS would take too long.



The geographical information system (GIS) must be connected to the Internet graphic server (IGS).



The selection screen contains the following three options for selecting transportation lanes or start and destination locations:

  • Selection by location name or location type
  • Selection by a work area from the Supply Chain Engineer
  • Selection by a location hierarchy (for example, transportation zones)

This makes the selection screen very large, which means that the actual selection is made using checkboxes. Since a minimum of start and destination location have to be chosen for each selection, the system asks you to activate the checkboxes that are missing for a complete selection. For technical reasons, this is done using error messages.

The different selection options for a location (for example, start location) supplement each other. This means you cannot also make a restriction by location names if you have already made a selection by work areas.

In the selection by work areas, you can also make a restriction by the standard work area of a certain user. In this case, you restrict the selection of the work area to the initial value and choose the user name of the owner of this standard work area.

You can make the selection on the basis of existing transportation lanes (that is, the selection of start and destination location restrict each other). On the other hand, temporary transportation lanes are generated between start and destination locations.

A warning is issued if the number of selected transportation lanes exceeds 10,000. This warning enables you to terminate processing.

Standard Variants


The number of preselected transportation lanes is given in the log for background processing.

The report list contains details about the transportation lanes for which distances and durations were preselected.


You can reorganize the preselected distances and durations from GIS. You find the transaction in the same menu path.
