Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA)
Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) is the approximate date and time at which a shipment, vehicle, or cargo is expected to reach its destination. ETA is commonly used in transportation and logistics to plan and coordinate the movement of goods, inform customers about their delivery status, and manage inventory levels. It is important to note that the ETA is an estimate and may change due to factors such as traffic, weather conditions, or other unforeseen circumstances.

Example or usage in road freight logistics:
A road freight logistics company provides its customers with the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for their shipments. The ETA helps customers plan their inventory management and coordinate their receiving operations. The logistics company continually updates the ETA based on real-time data and communicates any changes to the customer, ensuring a smooth and efficient delivery process.
