Container ships are spending more time in ports than they have in the past, according to an analysis from SeaIntel, which shows that cargo on Asia-Mediterranean, in particular, has experienced a decline in efficient vessel utilization.

The analyst agency has looked at how much time the container carriers' vessels spend at sea and in the ports - in both 2012 and 2013 - and has again studied the results in order to find whether there have been fundamental changes to carriers' networks and whether the alliances on Asia-Europe expect to spend more time in ports after the bigger ships join the network.
