Note:

MOL operated vessels in SAC-W and SAS-W services continued to achieve strong on-time departure performance with a result of 100% in April to June 2016.  

The on-time departure performance of CWL-E was affected by port congestion in Shanghai and Ningbo which resulted in a vessel delay. As a result, the performance slipped from 100% in January to March 2016 to 67% in April to June 2016.

 

For the CSW-S service, the measuring port was changed from Chiwan to Hong Kong in March 2016 due to the service structure change. The on-time departure performance slipped from 100% in January to March 2016 to 67% in April to June 2016.

Note:

After careful evaluation of our service network, MOL has modified the Japan to South East Asia (HS3) service into a modified HSX product. The HSX service commenced on May 31, 2016 and it provides wider connectivity with the current network over key transshipment ports in Japan, South East Asia to some key ports in West Asia. MOL operated vessels in this enhanced HSX service achieved 100%.

 

CHS-S service under MOL operation improved from 77% in January to March 2016 to 92% in April to June 2016.
