The Import button is a powerful tool to add multiple destination addresses at once. You can copy addresses in any application and paste those in the Import textarea. Adding locations in bulk has several advantages. Obviously, you don't need to enter each address in the search box one by one, which saves time. But next to that, placing the addresses on the map is also faster. Instead of sending each address to a Geocoding service, the route planner database is checked first.

1. Select the addresses in the origin application, e.g. Word document, Excel spreadsheet or Outlook email

2. Copy all addresses using the correct keyboard combination (often Ctrl-c)

3. In RouteXL, press the Import button

4. Select the textarea and paste the addresses (often Ctrl-v)

5. Press the Import button

6. Wait until all addresses have been added


  • Each address should be on one line.
  • If there are problems, a message will be displayed after all addresses have been handled.
  • The import dialog accepts coordinates and JSON too.

Additional fields

You can also import names, service times, time windows and comments with an address. These fields will be stripped from the input before geocoding and added to the location on the map.

  • Names between @ and @
  • Service times in minutes between ( and )
  • Ready and due time as hh:mm before and after >>
  • Comments between { and }
