ANZ’s First Predictive Time of Arrival Launches to Revolutionise Importing and Exporting


Platform8 is proud to announce it’s partnership with Awake.AI to launch a ground-breaking Predictive ETA API in New Zealand and Australia

Using machine learning algorithms, Predictive ETA provides real-time predictions on vessel voyages, enabling port operators and logistics providers to optimise their operations and reduce costs.

Predictive ETA’s accurate estimated time of arrival predictions reduce uncertainty in arrival times, leading to better planning and reduced costs for importers and exporters. Users can trust the estimated time of arrival provided by Predictive ETA, which increases reliability and reduces the need for contingency planning. Additionally, Predictive ETA provides a competitive advantage in the market, allowing for better decision-making and increased efficiency.

Predictive ETA’s global coverage enables automated monitoring and visibility of future arrivals up to several weeks ahead for oceangoing vessels, providing a significant advantage over traditional estimated time of arrival predictions, which are often inaccurate and unreliable. By utilising Predictive ETA, users can achieve concrete savings by reducing costs and increasing efficiency. Additionally, Predictive ETA can help users achieve their ESG metrics by reducing environmental emissions and vessel turnaround times.

Maximise Efficiency and Reduce Carbon Footprint 

Predictive ETA’s launch comes at a time when the shipping industry faces challenges related to port congestion and maritime transport emissions. By utilising Predictive ETA‘s machine learning-powered predictions, users can reduce fuel consumption and the environmental impact caused by maritime transport. Predictive ETA is a practical solution to the challenges faced by the industry, and we are excited to offer it to our clients in Australia and New Zealand.

“AI enhanced ETA enables accurate operations scheduling. It optimises berth planning and increases planning horizon for port resources. Now you can automate the vessel schedule monitoring and take seaside situational awareness to a new level”
