The main goal of real-time visibility is to provide predictive ETAs for shipments — when will a load be picked up, when will it be delivered and will it be on time or delayed.
But what exactly are the practical benefits of having ETAs for shipments? This is
the first whitepaper in a series exploring
the nature and value of ETA in transport
logistics from various angles. Pt 1 focuses on the business benefits for shippers.
How are the ETAs, which the whole industry is starting to rely on, calculated? You can make business decisions based on ETAs only if you are confident in their reliability.
This whitepaper gives a behind-the-scenes overview of the infrastructure and components necessary to create high-quality, reliable ETA predictions.
The biggest remaining challenge — missing and incorrect input data — can lead to highly misleading estimates. That’s why great visibility services are robust, expect errors, missing data and uncertainty — but still manage to provide valuable knowledge.
In this whitepaper, we point out these complications, so the reader is aware of them when selecting a real-time visibility vendor.
