MOL Liner Ltd. Announces On-Time Departure Performance Results for January 2016 to March 2016 for Key Services Calling at China Ports


MOL Liner Ltd. announces the On-Time Departure Performance quarterly results for January 2016 to March 2016 for key services calling at China ports in East-West, North-South and Intra-Asia trade lanes.  

In July 2015, MOL has established a 100% on-time departure performance goal to offer industry-leading transparency to customers and to showcase MOL’s strength as a carrier that provides high quality service. The performance measurement program in China is in addition to the Global KPI and Regional KPI launched four years ago by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd.

 

  • Scope of trade lanes and services

    East-West Trade:        Asia-U.S. West Coast (SE2-E)

    Asia-U.S. East Coast (SVS-E)

    Asia-Europe (LP4-W)

     

    North-South Trade:     Asia-East Coast South America (CSW-S)

    Asia-Mexico/West Coast South America (CWL-E)

    Asia-South Africa (SAC-W and SAS-W)

     

    Intra Asia Trade:         Japan-China/Straits (CHS-S and HS3-S)

                                 

     

  • Measurement criteria are:

  • We measure vessel departure in China, within 24 hours of scheduled actual time of departure versus proforma. A voyage is regarded as on-time if it departs the last China port of call within 24 hours of proforma.

 

  • In each trade, Table 1 covers all vessels in the above scope and Table 2 covers vessels under MOL operations.

 

Note:

MOL operated vessels in SE2-E service continued to achieve 100% on-time departure performance in January to March 2016.

 

Three MOL operated vessels in SVS-E service were delayed due to the dense fog and port congestion in Yantian. The on-time departure performance regressed from 91% in October to December 2015 to 80% in January to March 2016.

 

The overall performance of this service slipped significantly from 100% to 55% due to the bad weather and port closure in China.

 

Note:

MOL operated vessels in CSW-S, CWL-E, SAC-W and SAS-W services continuously achieved a strong on-time departure performance result of 100% in January to March 2016.  

The overall performance of CWL-E was affected by port congestion at Ningbo which resulted in vessel delay. As a result, the overall performance was at 70% in January to March 2016.

 

Dense fog and port closure in Shanghai and Ningbo affected the overall on-time departure performance on Asia to South Africa service (SAC-W) in January to March 2016. The performance slipped significantly from 100% in October to December 2015 to 60% in January to March 2016.

 

On Asia to South Africa service (SAS-W), the overall performance slipped from 91% in October to December 2015 to 64% in January to March 2016 due to dense fog and port closure in Xiamen and Hong Kong.

 

Note:

While attempting to maintain last quarter’s performance level for all Intra-Asia service, adverse weather interruptions in Japan (strong wind and rough sea) resulted in reduced performance in CHS-S and HS3-S services and significant delays. Berth congestion in Kobe has also had some impact in the two services. MOL operated vessels on CHS-S service slipped from 100% in October to December 2015 to 77% in January to March 2016.

 

HS3-S service was also affected by the dense fog in Qingdao and port congestion in Japan during the New Year holiday also affected on-time departure performance of MOL operated vessels in January to March 2016. The performance slipped to 89% in this quarter, compared to 100% in October to December 2015.
