Estimated Time of Sailing (ETS)

What is Estimated Time of Sailing?

Estimated Time of Sailing is a term used for the shipment or movement of goods and people via the sea/ocean. ETS indicates the time a vessel is expected to depart a specific port.

ETS is similar to Estimated Time of Departure (ETD) because they both indicate the time a specific transport system leaves the station or port. While ETD covers all aspects of transportation, ETS is only used for the ocean and sea transportation.
