PTV xSERVER - ETA Calculation API
ETA CALCULATION FOR FLEET MANAGEMENT
Connecting the transportation chain with a reliable ETA
Why should you use the ETA Calculation API by PTV xServer?
Calculating the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) of trucks at their destination creates a benefit for all stakeholders of the transportation chain – from shipper, to haulier, to ramp operator (yard or transport manager). It keeps them up-to-date on delays and expected arrival times. Thereby, it enables them to intervene in case of disruptions, plan resources accordingly and reduce idle times. This results in more efficiency for everyone: Ramp operators know when to expect incoming transports and are able to ensure an efficient and balanced use of their resources, hauliers reduce long and unproductive waiting times at ramps, and shippers avoid contractual penalties, while maintaining a high service quality.
PTV Drive&Arrive calculates the ETA based on tour information and position data as well as traffic information and all truck-relevant attributes and restrictions.
