 French term or phrase: mode de calcul au jalonnement Domaine: Logiciel de gestion logistique Il s'agit d'un mode de calcul des distances de voyages (pour livraison) Voici la définition donnée dans le "Reference guide" du logiciel que je traduis. Extrait: • Mode J : Mode de calcul au jalonnement. (= par étape) On calcule la distance entre l’origine et le premier point de livraison, puis la distance entre chaque point et le point suivant. On somme toutes ces distances. La distance au jalonnement représente donc la distance réellement parcourue par le camion. Merci d'avance pour vos idées, Nathalie
