Sea-Intelligence has published issue 138 of the Global Liner Performance (GLP) report, with schedule reliability figures up to and including January 2023.
While schedule reliability continued to increase for much of 2022, in January 2023 there has been a M/M decline of -3.8 percentage points to 52.6%. Despite this decrease, schedule reliability in January 2023 was considerably higher than in the previous two years, with the Y/Y increase at 22.2 percentage points. The average delay for late vessel arrivals on the other hand continued to improve, as it has for much for 2022, with the latest figure at 5.26 days, a M/M drop of -0.24 days.
MSC was the most reliable top-14 carrier in December with 63.3%, followed by Maersk with 60.1%. The next 10 carriers recorded schedule reliability between 50%-60%, with only Yang Ming and ZIM recording schedule reliability of under 50%, at 47.7% and 47.2%, respectively. 10 of the top-14 carriers recorded a M/M improvement in schedule reliability in December 2022, while MSC recorded no change, and 3 carriers recorded a decline. Yang Ming recorded the largest increase of 5.3 percentage points, while ZIM recorded the largest M/M decline of -6.1 percentage points. All carriers recorded double-digit Y/Y improvements though.
All carriers recorded a M/M decline in schedule reliability in January 2023, with Hapag-Lloyd recording the smallest decline of a marginal -0.4 percentage points. Wan Hai was the only carrier with a double-digit decline of -15.4 percentage points. All carriers except for Hamburg Süd recorded double-digit Y/Y improvements in schedule reliability in January 2023.
