Proactively manage shipments and make timely decisions to avoid D&D

Optimize Intermodal Transportation

When containers are in transit, you can predict delays at least 10 days in advance, providing plenty of time to mitigate potential issues and reduce detention and demurrage (D&D) charges. Planning the logistics of intermodal transportation becomes easier, enabling allowing you to prioritize and re-book transit out of the port by train/truck.

Accurate ETAs

During COVID, Windward Ocean Freight Visibility allowed us to improve our ETA accuracy from around 30% to 80%. That has had a massive impact on our efficiency and, of course, on our customer satisfaction.

Single source of truth

Windward’s data accuracy was best fitted to become our company’s single source of truth. Its user-friendliness and ease of use promised the smoothest and quickest adoption across all teams, including those that had rarely used this type of technology.

Drill down of any delay causes

We were absolutely blown away by Windward’s data. The visibility down to the port details and a drill down of any delay causes – and all in real time. Other available solutions today are a million miles away from that.

Deep learning algorithms and more than 12 years of expertise enable Windward to deliver the most accurate ETA predictions in the industry. Approximately 87% of Windward’s ETA predictions – provided 10 days before the actual time of arrival (ATA) – are accurate.* 

*Predictions are within a range of +/- 48 hours of the ATA.

Yes, Windward Ocean Freight Visibility automatically generates insights into the reasons for container arrival delays in real-time. These insights are based on the Maritime AI™ platform’s ability to understand vessel behaviors and assess the chain of events leading up to the delay.

Windward Ocean Freight Visibility collects data from a multitude of sources, including AIS transmissions, carrier websites, weather forecasts, and many other third-party sources. It also includes Windward’s 12+ years of proprietary data – vessel profiles, port-to-port movements, geofencing of all container ports, terminals, waiting areas worldwide, and more. These sources are categorized and prioritized based on the requirements to generate specific, actionable insights.

Maritime AI™ Predicted ETAs are checked, validated, and if needed, updated automatically every 10 minutes. All vessel events are also updated multiple times per hour, and all container events are checked and updated multiple times per day.
