Duplicated data - need distinct sums

Hey everyone, this is a complicated one for me to get my arms wrapped around.

 

Essentially, I have origins and destinations that I concatenated and paired into "lanes". This is based on a data set that is being uploaded into an application for the business to use. These "lanes" have order volume in a column called "Lane_Vol". I am building a summary of what is going into the application, so I uploaded this spreadsheet into Power BI. The problem is this:

 

In the example of Fairburn, GA to Atlanta, GA, there are 11 versions of this lane because there are 11 different Atlanta based zip codes. Each one shows "6" for lane_vol, because the v-lookup on order history pulled that into the file each time it appeared. When I summarize the data, it becomes 66 instead of 6 because of the 6 versions of that.

 

Second, another reason there may be duplicated "lanes" is because there are multiple business partners assigned to lanes, and we rank them for automation to assign them. Fairburn to Atlanta might have a rank 1, and then repeat for the rank 2, and again for the rank 3.

 

But my dashboard is supposed to be a summary of the overall volume assigned to each rank, so that isn't as big a problem.

 

What can I do to get the correct volume showing, rather than summing up the duplicated volumes?
