How it works

Intuitive and easy-to-use

01.

Add your Vessel

Search by vessel name, MMSI or IMO and select the vessel.

Eta module first step

02.

Choose Departure Position and Time

The ETA Module is connected to a database for all vessels in the world. This allows us to use accurate AIS data to locate your vessel. You can choose the current position to start the calculation or select any port in the world and also select the current time or enter a future departure time.

eta module second step

03.

Add Arrival Position

Then enter the port of arrival and click to get the ETA result.

eta module third step

04.

Get an Accurate ETA Prediction

Once all parameters are set, an ETA Prediction will be displayed along with a recap of all selected parameters. 
If the vessel is still a few days away from reaching its port of destination, make sure to refresh the prediction regularly to get the best result.

By utilizing data to forecast the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), Sinay’s innovative technology is dedicated to enhancing the efficiency of the entire maritime industry. The ETA module and the API ETA are significant steps in the fight against pollution and climate change, as it aids in reducing port congestion and optimizing supply chains, resulting in more efficient maritime traffic that is also environmentally conscious and respectful of marine biodiversity.

Enhance your operations

Why Is ETA Important in Shipping?

Reliable ETAs help streamline operations, from initial purchase to delivery. Having accurate and regularly updated ETA helps BCOs locate their cargo and improve customer relations through better visibility. It helps shipping agents plan the optimal port call, ensuring that shipment respects delays and stays on track. 

It helps freight forwarders optimize multi-modal freight, and it helps port authorities reduce port congestion and avoid berthing conflicts. 

Eta Module overview by Sinay

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.

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.
