CARRIER DISRUPTION / RELIABILITY (July 2021)

The container shipping analyst’s latest Global Liner Performance (GLP) report, with schedule reliability figures up to and including July 2021, covers schedule reliability across 34 different trades lanes and 60+ carriers, and indicates that vessel schedule reliability fell month-on-month by 3.8 percentage points in July to 35.6%, down “a massive 39.7 percentage points” from last year.

The average delay for late vessel arrivals continued to deteriorate in July 2021, increasing by a further 0.35 days M/M to 6.88 days. The level of delays in 2021 have been the highest across each month compared to previous years.

Maersk Line was the most reliable top-14 carrier in July 2021, with schedule reliability of 47.3%. Hamburg Süd was the only other carrier with schedule reliability higher than 40%, with only four carriers between 30%-40%, six between 20%-30%, and the remaining two under 20%.
