Maersk Line and Hamburg Sud received top marks as the most reliable container carriers in the third quarter

Maersk Line ships were on time 80 percent of the time from August through October, while Hamburg Sud vessels arrived on time 78.5 percent of the time

Both Maersk Line and Hamburg Sud received top marks as the most reliable container carriers in the third quarter, Drewry's Carrier Performance Insight shows, as industry-wide reliability began to recover in October.

Maersk Line ships were on time 80 percent of the time from August through October, while Hamburg Sud vessels arrived on time 78.5 percent of the time. In terms of punctuality, Cosco came in 3rd with vessels on time 69.9 percent, followed closely by the rest of the CKYHE Alliance carriers, which include “K” Line, Yang Ming, Hanjin Shipping and Evergreen Line, Drewry said.

Industry wide, Drewry said reliability improved in October, with ships arriving on time 64 percent of the time on Asia-Europe, trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic trade stops, up from 63 percent in September and 55 percent in August.

“It is a positive to see reliability improving, but the industry’s on-time performance is still unacceptably low for many shippers,” Simon Heaney, senior manager of supply chain research at Drewry, said.

Vessels on the Asia-to-Europe trade were the least reliable during the third quarter, only arriving on time 58 percent of the time, as opposed to 62 percent on the trans-Pacific and 77 percent on the trans-Atlantic.

Congestion on the U.S. West Coast affected schedule reliability, but Drewry believes falling bunker fuel prices could help keep carriers on time, Drewry said.  Since July 1, high-sulfur fuel prices have dropped 38.1 percent, or $229 per metric ton. Low sulfur fuel rates are down 40 percent, or $254 per metric ton, in the same time period.

"Lower fuel costs won’t immediately see containerships running at their design speeds," Haney said. "But at the very least carriers should now be more willing to speed up if they fall behind schedule."

The Carrier Performance Insight is a new report from Drewry and CargoSmart. The companies measure on-time port arrivals against schedules on 350 different port pair combinations. SeaIntel also publishes a schedule reliability report.
