Schedule reliability improves again in March

The Danish data analysis company, Sea-Intelligence has worked on schedule reliability figures of the container shipping lines for the previous month.

According to the report, global schedule reliability continues to slowly creep upwards, recording a marginal month-to-month improvement yet again, with the March 2022 figure reaching 35.9%.

Despite being the highest 2022 reliability figure so far, the March 2022 score is still slightly below the 2021 level, according to Sea-Intelligence analysts, who noted that the average delay for late vessel arrivals decreased once again, this time by -0.32 days to 7.26 days in March 2022.

"Despite the improvement, the average delay figure has now been over seven days since August 2021 and continues to be the highest across each month when compared historically," pointed out Alan Murphy, CEO of Sea-Intelligence.

With schedule reliability of 50.3%, Maersk was the only carrier with a score of over 50%, followed by its subsidiary Hamburg Süd with 45.9%. Additionally, there were seven carriers with schedule reliability of 30%-40% and five with schedule reliability of 20%-30%.

In March 2022, a lot of the carriers were very close to each other in terms of schedule reliability, with 10 carriers within 8 percentage points of each other.

Meanwhile, the Taiwanese carrier Wan Hai had the lowest schedule reliability in March 2022 at 22.6%.

On a year-to-year level, only three of the top-14 carriers recorded an improvement in schedule reliability in March 2022.
