Container line schedule reliability has remained largely static despite ongoing port congestion and supply chain issues around the world.

According to Sea-Intelligence which compiles statistics across 34 different trades and over 60 shipping lines schedule reliability has hovered around the 40% level since March 2021. Although average schedule reliability is well below the 65 – 85% ranges seen in 2018 and 2019, it did not actually get any worse problems such the Covid related restrictions and shutdowns at Yantian port.

In June schedule reliability improved 0.8% over the previous month to 39.5%, however, was down a massive 38.2 percentage points year-on-year.

Maersk Line was the most reliable carrier in June with a schedule reliability of 49.7%, while Wan Hai Lines propped up the list of major lines with 21.2%.
