How should I take duration into account for trade routes?

The title says it. When creating a trade route, there's a "duration" (I think) next to a clock to the right of the name of the city. How does this affect game play?
I looked at https://civilization.fandom.com/wiki/Trade_Route_(Civ6) but did not really understand it.
Duration affects how long until you can change your trade route. This can matter when political alliances shift.
As the trade value is expressed on a per turn basis, trade route duration has no further impact that I am aware of.
Update Eric makes a valid point about trading posts being created only when a route completes.
