Schedule reliability revamps in August, Maersk still leading

Global schedule reliability continues its upward trend, according to the latest analysis from Sea-Intelligence.

In its latest Global Liner Performance (GLP), Sea-Intelligence recorded the largest month-on-month (M/M) increase in 2022 of 5.8 percentage points, reaching 46.2 per cent in August.

The average delay for late vessel arrivals has been dropping sharply so far this year, tapering off a little in the past few months, CEO Alan Murphy wrote.

In August 2022, average delay improved sharply once again, dropping by -0.57 days M/M to 5.86 days.

This is now the first time that average delay has dropped below the six-day mark since April 2021.
