Estimated time of arrival (ETA) is the date and time that a vessel is predicted to arrive at a specified port.
ETA by FleetMon is based on our own routing network. The ETA is calculated using the following parameters:
- possible draft
- vessel history
- maximum speed
Output is the calculation of the time of entering a port.
NOTE: Normally the Nautical Officer also provides the ETA. In this case it is called "ETA by Vessel".
HINT: If the "ETA by Vessel" is LATER than the ETA by FleetMon, the vessel has probably decreased the speed before arriving. In this scenario we recommend using the ETA by Vessel.
HINT: If the "ETA by Vessel" is EARLIER than the ETA by FleetMon, the likelihood is that the ETA by vessel has not been updated or the vessel has had to divert the route due to weather conditions, in this scenario we recommend using the ETA by FleetMon.
