Partners pull Maersk's reliability down

Plenty of cause to worry among the container carriers' customers when even Maersk Line's ability to arrive on time is far from the level achieved in the past, says analysts Drewry.

The major container carriers' schedule reliability has reached its lowest point since the spring of 2011.

The carriers' schedule reliability has decreased in five straight quarters, and according to analysts Drewry's latest survey their schedule reliability is now down to 61 percent, and even Maersk Line - which traditionally tops the list as the most reliable carrier - is far from its glorious past, now down at around 70 percent in the 1st quarter 2014, where the carrier used to hover around 80 percent. The carrier even peaked at approximately 95 percent once.
