Bad weather in the North Atlantic, China, and Northern Europe affected Maersk Line's ability to arrive on time and deliver containers to the carrier's customers, Maersk Line Head of Operations Keith Svendsen tells ShippingWatch after an analysis by SeaIntel put the carrier's schedule reliability at 79.5 percent.

"Our reliability was hit hard by the weather in the North Atlantic, China, and Northern Europe. Carriers have different networks, which means that not everyone is equally exposed to various parameters," he says, pointing to weather conditions, port infrastructure, and the rate of productivity in the different container terminals.
