APL Most Reliable Carrier in May

Singapore-based container line APL, part of Neptune Orient Lines, was the most reliable carrier with a global on-time performance of 85.5% in May, according to the latest Global Liner Performance Report by SeaIntel Maritime Analysis.

The report, which ranks the performance of the top 20 carriers, says that there was a global improvement in container lines’ schedule reliability from April to May 2015.

It noted that schedule reliability increased considerably in May to a global performance of 78.3% compared to 72.8% in the previous month.

”APL has been working hard to improve the reliability of our product. Our performance improvement is a gratifying result for APL’s dedicated team of onshore and seafaring professionals who work tirelessly each day to earn the trust of our customers,” said Nathaniel Seeds, Chief Operations Officer of APL.

Based on the figures published in June, APL’s schedule reliability in its key trade lanes have shown an improving trend over the first five months of the year.

For example, APL’s on-time performance in the head-haul Asia – North Europe trade recorded an improvement from 62% in January to 94% in May 2015. A similar trend is also visible in the head-haul Transatlantic Westbound trade as APL increased its service reliability from 55% in January to 64% in May.

Likewise, APL’s on-time performance in the head-haul Asia – US West Coast and Asia – US East Coast trades rose to 65% and 74% respectively in May. The results are 41% and 15% higher than its performance in the respective trades in January when port congestion, particularly in the US West Coast, impacted global schedule reliability.
