Container carriers note reliability setback in July

Schedule reliability for container carriers noted a setback for the first time since March this year, according to SeaIntel's review of data from July. Maersk Line returned to reliability and finished in the top spot among the industry's 20 biggest players.

Container carrier Maersk Line bounced back as number one in SeaIntel's latest review of global container carriers' ability to deliver containers on time. The carrier's vessels called on schedule on 80.9 percent of the time in July, according to analyst agency SeaIntel's latest survey.

This development comes after Maersk Line, which has historically been the by far most reliable carrier, in June found itself pushed down to fourth place on the Top 20, beaten by three Asian carriers, Japan's MOL, Singapore's APL and NYK.
