Will the APSP problem be executed once or do they want to make repeated
queries? What is the exact output required, (an estimate of) the full
distance matrix?

There is some support for APSP, but I doubt something matching your
scenario. But to judge that some more detail is required. In particular,
the input/output specifications (also in terms of size and expected
practical running time) will exclude certain algorithms.
