Another three carriers had schedule reliability between 30%-40%, with only three box lines recording schedule reliability of 20%-30%.

Six carriers had schedule reliability of under 20%, with Evergreen recording the lowest August 2021 schedule reliability of just 11.5%, according to Sea-Intelligence data.

Additionally, only HMM recorded a M/M improvement in schedule reliability, of 1.6 percentage points, while no carrier recorded a Y/Y improvement, with the smallest Y/Y decline of -24.2 percentage points recorded by Maersk Line.
