Without an accurate ETA, shippers can’t efficiently plan and schedule operations. But, many factors can affect a rail shipment’s ETA: service days, weather, differences in train types, consistent delay trends and more. Advanced ETA leverages artificial intelligence and data from thousands of origin-destination pairs to create a more accurate time of arrival estimate that takes those factors into account.
Advanced ETA is the third iteration of ETA from Railinc and improves upon previous models through use of sequence modeling. Sequence modeling is capable of recognizing and retaining important data while ensuring that irrelevant data is not factored into a prediction.
