2M tops in TP summer schedule reliability

Data from shipment management software provider CargoSmart showed Maersk/MSC bested other alliances on the transpacific, but it lagged well behind on transatlantic reliability.

   The 2M Alliance of Maersk Line and Mediterranean Shipping Co. had the best schedule reliability in June and July of the three major alliances serving the trade, according to the shipment management software provider CargoSmart.
   Overall reliability on the trade for the weeks measured (May 31 through July 25) was 65 percent, with the 2M hitting 71 percent, the CKYHE Alliance on time 67 percent of the time, and the G6 Alliance on time 65 percent.
   The data was compiled for CargoSmart’s monthly Innovating newsletter. CKYHE carriers include Cosco Container Lines, “K” Line, Yang Ming, Hanjin and Evergreen Line. The G6 carriers are APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, MOL, NYK Line, and OOCL.
   On the Asia-Europe and transatlantic trade, the CKYHE carriers performed best. The alliance was 83 percent on time between Asia and Europe, with the average for the trade at 80 percent, while on the transatlantic trade, its services were 87 percent on time while the average for the trade was 73 percent. Notably, the 2M carriers’ on-time percentage on the transatlantic was 40 percent, by far the highest deviation from the average by any alliance on any of the three trades measured.
   The data includes both alliance and non-alliance services.
   “Carriers provide EDI sailing schedule updates in different formats,” CargoSmart said. “To ensure that we provided an accurate comparison of estimated times of arrival and actual times of arrival, we included the schedule reliability results only for the carriers that provided EDI schedule updates with both the dates and times.”
