Estimated Time of Arrival Module

Accuratly predict the ETA of any vessel

Thanks to Artificial Intelligence and data-driven algorithms, our Estimated Time of Arrival module accurately predicts the Estimated Time of Arrival of any vessel. 

Our machine-learning software combines the data obtained from a ship’s AIS (Automatic Identification System), with historic voyage data and metocean data to precisely calculate the next port of call of a ship and its arrival time.

Designed for Ports and Shipping

Use cases

Best smart port models

Ports

Ports can minimize vessel turnaround time and predict how long it will take a ship to come at berth
Smart Port Data AI

Terminal Operators

Terminal Operators can optimize cargo operations, and port call processes by better allocating resources
ETA in shipping estimated time of arrival of delivery

Shippers

Shippers can track their vessels along the entire route and optimize vessel routes
containers port

Beneficial Cargo Owners (BCOs)

Beneficial Cargo Owners (BCOs) can track their cargo, which is especially important for interoperable routes

Use case for Ports

Why Is ETA Important for Ports?

Port authorities need precise times to reduce congestion, improve safety, and better allocate resources. Accurately monitoring the time of arrival of the vessels coming to the port will help to ensure an efficient supply chain and enhance the port’s activity, capacity, and competitiveness. 
When the exact ETA is known, all port operations become more efficient.

Use case for Shipping

Why Is ETA Important for Shipping?

Planning and scheduling vessels must be improved due to an increase in globalization and intense global port congestion.
As the world population increases, demand, ship size, and vessel traffic also increase.

For instance, a vessel may arrive on time to a port, but if other vessels are late, then an on-time vessel still can wait days before unloading. This costs shipping companies and BCOs time and money.

However, the ETA module can be implemented so that the ETA of any ship may be calculated in just four steps.

How does ETA prediction work?

 The AIS data traditionally obtained from a ship’s sensors is wholly based on the information that is provided by the crew on board. When we base the results on the thoroughness of the crew’s reporting, the accuracy of the ETA and the next port of call can be misreported due to human error, something that has been frequently happening in the industry for decades. 

Sinay with its distinctive data-based approach aims to transform the way ship owners and charterers predict a ship’s ETA. Backed by AI algorithms, Sinay’s ETA module combines AIS data with historic shipping patterns, improving accuracy and facilitating a more transparent workplace for all the stakeholders concerned.  

Why should you use ETA prediction?

For starters, ETA prediction with advanced AI algorithms predict results with pinpoint accuracy. Shipping companies can improve their logistics chain when it comes to delivering freight within a stipulated time in the due process. What’s more is, all stakeholders get to have vital insights about future fleet positions, which can then be leveraged for framing future cargo handling plans. 

Besides shipping companies and charterers, the tool would be of particular interest to companies that carry out port-based operations. Some examples are companies engaged in: classification societies, paint, spare parts, etc. Port authorities could find this tool to be of particular interest when it comes to traffic management. 

FAQ

The calculated information available in the estimated time of arrival Module are: 

  • The estimated time of arrival of a vessel in a port  
  • The route time 
  • Statistics of the ship on this route 

Our machine-learning software combines the data obtained from a ship’s AIS (Automatic Identification System), with historic voyage data and metocean data to precisely calculate the next port of call of a ship and its arrival time. 

The estimated time of arrival Module is a “plug-and-play” solution.
