Global schedule reliability seems to have broken the trend seen since the start of this year, increasing by 3.6 percentage points in June to 40.0%.
That’s according to the latest Global Liner Performance (GLP) report undertaken by maritime consultancy Sea-Intelligence.
This is also the first time since the start of the pandemic that schedule reliability has improved year-on-year (y-o-y). The average delay for late vessel arrivals has been dropping sharply this year but remained unchanged month-on-month at 6.24 days in June. The delay figure is now firmly below the seven-day mark, and an improvement over the respective 2021 figure, says Sea-Intelligence CEO Alan Murphy.
In terms of carrier scores, Maersk, at 49%, was once again top of the log, followed by Hamburg Süd (41.4%).
On a y-o-y level, nine of the top-14 carriers recorded an improvement in June, with Evergreen the only one to achieve double-digits at 16.2 percentage points.
The report is quite comprehensive and covers schedule reliability across 34 different trade lanes and 60+ carriers. This article covers the global highlights.
