UASC improved reliability highlighted in reporton Feb 4, 2014
A new report on the development in carriers’ on-time performance from 2012 to 2013 has shown UASC to be the only carrier in the top 20 to have improved its reliability. The figures were released by liner analysts SeaIntel.
The main conclusions from the analysis are that of the main east-west trades, only shippers on the transpacific trade lane have experienced improved performance in schedule reliability on an annual level.
It shows that Maersk Line, Hamburg Süd and APL were the most reliable carriers in both 2012 and 2013.
According to the repot global schedule reliability declined slightly from 2012 to 2013, as it decreased with 1.1 percentage points from 80.6 per cent in 2012 to 79.5 per cent in 2013.
The decline was partially driven by lower performance on the majority of the main east-west trade lanes, with the exception of the Transpacific Eastbound trade lane.
“UASC is the only other Top20 carrier that has managed to improve its performance in the period. The carrier has improved its performance with a slight margin of 0.1 percentage point,” SeaIntel’s report stated.
