The reliability of the container carriers went down a little in November 2012, to 84 percent versus 82 percent in October. Still, the shipping companies are generally getting better at arriving on time, according to a survey by SeaIntel Maritime Analysis.

The world's second-largest container carrier, MSC, again improved upon the shipping company's already impressive progress in 2012, where the shipping company moved from the bottom of the world's Top 20 shipping companies to currently occupying the number four spot on the list of the world's most reliable shipping companies, with a score of 90 percent. Maersk Line maintains its position as number one, with a score of 99 percent, which lends further support to the company's Daily Maersk concept, says SeaIntel.
