OOCL tops ocean carrier reliability chart, with Yang Ming taking wooden spoon
Hong Kong container shipping line OOCL has been named as the most reliable carrier by SeaIntel ...
Severe congestion maybe the excuse, but container line reliability fell in December for the second month in a row and recorded the worst on-time performance since last August. The aggregate performance for the three main trades dropped to 58% in the last month of the year. The worst lane was the transatlantic, which slumped to 46.3%. Maersk bucked the trend with a three-month average of 80%, followed by Hamburg Sud (75%) and Cosco (70%), while MSC showed off its new colours by rising 9 points to 61%. According to Drewry, the industry could see better results soon as slow winter demand and cheaper fuel prices may help box lines to catch up.
