    such tha they have the shortest possible trip duration.

    Dear all,

    Drivers repeatedly competes to find the least crowded route from A to B, such that they have the shortest possible duration.

    In the sentence above, I don't know how to interpret the phrase "such that...".

    Is the part in bold different in meaning from "in order to have the shortest possible duration"?

    Thank you!

    Re: such tha they have the shortest possible trip duration.

    I don't find that the most natural way of saying it. I'd probably have gone with "so that". Note that "competes" should be "compete" - it refers back to "Drivers".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
