Short description

Fintraffic Vessel Traffic Services (Fintraffic VTS) is purchasing a service for Port Call Information, as described in this Request to Tender and its annexes. The service will provide information about the vessels at Baltic Sea arriving and departing to commercial ports in Finland. The service must be able to provide automated arrival time estimation (ETA, ETB) and functionality for creating time stamps for actual port call events (ATA, ATD). The Port Call information service is computing service with API interfaces for accessing the data. The Port Call information service will be used to predict the arrival of the vessels to predefined locations along the Finnish coast. The predefined locations can be pilot boarding places, port areas, berths and other areas of interest. The Port Call information service is expected to provide ETA estimations for port call arrivals. The solution could be based for example on the machine learning algorithms that produce updating ETA estimates for all vessels arriving to Finnish ports at reasonable accuracy. The Port Call information service will also create time stamps for the actual port call events based on geo fencing (identification of the vessel, specified area, event time) and vessel locations. Fintraffic VTS will distribute the data from the service to all potential stakeholders in Finnish port ecosystems.
