Schedule reliability sees setback to January levels

Schedule reliability declined by 2.5 percentage points in April, reversing the previous trend of improvement.

This brings the figure to just 0.6 percentage points above the year’s lowest level recorded in January, reported Sea-Intelligence.

The firm just released its 153rd edition of the Global Liner Performance (GLP) report, detailing schedule reliability through April 2024. This comprehensive report examines reliability across 34 trade lanes and over 60 carriers. The following summarises the key global findings from the report.

On a year-on-year basis, schedule reliability dropped by 12.1 percentage points. However, the average delay for late vessel arrivals improved slightly, decreasing by 0.31 days month-on-month to 4.74 days.

Sea-Intelligence explained that this improvement brings the delay figures closer to pre-pandemic levels.

Among the top 13 carriers, Wan Hai emerged as the most reliable in April 2024, achieving a schedule reliability rate of 59 per cent. Evergreen followed with 53.2 per cent reliability, while four other carriers surpassed the 50 per cent mark.

ZIM was the least reliable carrier, with a schedule reliability of 44.2 per cent.
