Schedule reliability still the weak point
Sea-Intelligence, a Copenhagen-based maritime intelligence provider, has updated its schedule reliability figures up to and including December 2021. The report covers the relevant data from 34 trade lanes and more than 60 carriers.
Schedule reliability continues to decline, the level dropping by 1.2 percentage points to 32.0%. It was thus -12.5 percentage points lower compared to the same period in 2020. The average delay for late vessel arrivals increased to 7.33 days in December 2021, which was the fifth consecutive month with the delay figure above seven days.
Again, Maersk Line was the most reliable carrier, with schedule reliability of 46.2%, followed by Hamburg Süd with 41.4%. Only MSC had schedule reliability between 30%-40%, with six carriers recording schedule reliability of 20%-30%. The remaining five carriers had schedule reliability of under 20%. (sh)
