With the use of telematics and dynamic ETAs, Turvo calculates when a shipment is due to arrive at the next stop on a route. Once a shipment status is Dispatched, the estimated time of arrival (ETA) is calculated. You can manually update an ETA when call checks that take place in between location pings cause the ETA to change. Manual updates are overridden once the next telematics location ping is received.
Protip: See our ETA calculations: Configuring max distance and speed for approximate Hours of Service for more information on ETA.
Steps to manually update the ETA
- Navigate to the shipment whose ETA you wish to update.
Note: The shipment must be in the Ship phase to manually update the ETA.

Updated ETA in the shipment timeline
Once the ETA is manually updated, the changes are reflected in the shipment timeline.
Important note: Manual updates to ETA are overridden when telematics sends a location ping.
