As round-Africa routings return to normal and carriers’ service networks stabilize, there has been a noticeable improvement in schedule reliability. In March 2024, the figure rose by 1.6 percentage points month-on-month reaching 54.6%.

However, it still falls short of pre-crisis levels. Year-on-year, schedule reliability in March 2024 decreased by 7.9 percentage points. The average delay for late vessel arrivals decreased by 0.52 days month-on-month to 5.03 days, showing a slight improvement compared to the pre-crisis figure recorded in November 2024.

In March 2024, Wan Hai emerged as the most reliable carrier among the top 13, boasting a schedule reliability of 59.7%. Hapag-Lloyd and ZIM closely followed with the same schedule reliability figures of 56.1%. Additionally, eight other carriers achieved reliability rates above the 50% threshold. PIL, on the other hand, ranked as the least reliable carrier with a schedule reliability of 49%.

11 of the top-13 were able to record a M/M improvement in schedule reliability in March 2024, with the largest improvement of 11.1 percentage points recorded by Wan Hai. CMA CGM recorded the largest decline of -1.8 percentage points. On a Y/Y level, none of the 13 carriers recorded an increase in schedule reliability, with PIL recording the largest decline of -18.1 percentage points,” explains Alan Murphy, CEO of Sea-Intelligence.
