Actual time of departure (ATD)

Actual time of departure (ATD) is the actual time that a shipment or transport vehicle leaves its origin location and begins its journey to the destination. The ATD is an important aspect of supply chain and logistics management, as it can impact delivery schedules, transit times, and other key performance indicators. In some cases, the ATD may differ from the scheduled time of departure due to various factors, such as traffic, weather conditions, or equipment delays.
