Estimated time of arrival (ETA)

Estimated time of arrival (ETA) is the estimated or expected time a shipment, vehicle, ship or aircraft is scheduled to arrive at its destination. The ETA is used for planning and tracking purposes and helps carriers, shippers, and receivers to coordinate their activities and make informed decisions. The ETA is calculated based on various factors such as mode of transportation, distance, weather conditions, and traffic.
