Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), Maersk Line's new partner in the planned 2M alliance, seems to be moving away from the near-constant bottom rankings the carrier has achieved in the past as the world's least reliable container carrier.

According to SeaIntel's new Global Liner Performance analysis of the 20 largest carriers' abilities to arrive and depart on time, MSC has gone from finishing 13th in July to finishing 8th in August. The analysis shows that Chilean CSAV, Hamburg Süd and MSC are the three carriers that achieved the biggest improvement in this period, at 2.1, 2.1 and 3.0 percentage points, respectively.
