Everything from weather to the railroads’ operational planning has the potential to affect a rail shipment’s ETA. Currently, many ETAs fail to account for the variety of possible operating conditions, including service days, differences in train types, consistent delay trends and more, leaving customers with a less-than-optimal ETA. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, Advanced ETA identifies and considers relevant trends while ignoring non-factors, bringing the most accurate time of arrival estimate for intermodal shipments.
Without a reliable ETA, shippers can’t efficiently plan facility operations, manage inventory, or inform customers. Using AI and machine learning, Advanced ETA trains models per origin-destination pairs and delivers an ETA that accounts for complex operating practices.
Enable Precise Inventory Planning
- Reduce the risk of missed delivery with a more accurate ETA
- More time to adjust to delayed arrivals and reroute other products
- Better plan yard operations with the ability to calculate a more accurate last free day
- Eliminate the domino effect of unexpected supply chain delays
Merely tracing your assets in real time is not enough to identify optimization opportunities. Delays happen, exceptions occur, and your car's current location doesn't tell you when to expect a completed trip. Advanced ETA's more accurate estimate that accounts for these scenarios gives you the ability to plan more efficient operations.
Better Leverage Your Fleet
More accurate ETAs can help enable car owners to optimize car utilization and planning. With a better ETA, shippers can fully leverage their fleet to move the maximum amount of freight per asset. Reduce unnecessary dwell time and keep your assets moving with Advanced ETA.
Using AI and machine learning, Advanced ETA trains models using origin-destination pairs and delivers an ETA that accounts for complex operating practices. With Advanced ETA, you'll be able to provide a more accurate estimated time of arrival to your customers.
