The major container carriers achieved an all-time high reliability rate in the final quarter of 2012, according to numbers from Drewry. 79.9 percent of the arrivals were on time, which was 6.4 percentage points better than the previous quarter. The developments also represented a significant improvement in relation to the former record for a quarter, namely the second quarter last year, which came in at 75.7 percent.

The study also shows that the on-time percentage rate stayed in the 70-80 percent range for 2012 as a whole, whereas previously it had not gone above 69 percent in any quarter since Drewry started measuring ship reliability at the end of 2005.
