November 16, 2016 – Hong Kong – MOL Liner Ltd. today announced the On-Time Arrival Performance quarterly results for July to September 2016 for the major trade lanes as an effort of upgrading and improving the quality of services MOL Liner offers.

 

During the past four years, MOL has continued to offer industry-leading transparency to customers and showcase its strength as a carrier that provides high quality service by working towards a set of goals for key performance indicators (KPI), including on-time arrival performance.

                                                                                       

Measurement criteria are:

 

  • Scope of trade lanes is

East-West Trade:     Asia-U.S. West Coast

                                    Asia-U.S. East Coast

                                    Asia-Europe

                                    Asia-Mediterranean

 

North-South Trade:  Asia-East Coast South America

                                   Asia-Mexico/West Coast South America

                                   Europe-Africa

 

Intra Asia Trade:     Japan-Hong Kong/Straits

                                 Japan-Hong Kong/Straits/India/Pakistan

                                 Japan/Thailand

 

  • When a vessel arrives at the first port of destination area for both directions, eastbound and westbound, within 24 hours of scheduled time of arrival, the voyage is regarded as On-Time Arrival.

  • In each trade, Table 1 covers all vessels in the above scope and Table 2 covers vessels under MOL operations. Both results are weight-averaged based on MOL space allocation of each service.

The following performance criteria were used:

·         Measured 4 services on MOL’s Intra Asia trade on MOL’s own vessels.

 

Note:

MOL operated vessels in the HSX service continue to achieve a strong on-time arrival performance with a result of 100% in July to September 2016.

 

The performance of the CHS service slipped from 96% in April to June 2016 to 85% in July to September 2016. The adverse weather and heavy rain caused low productivity and port congestion in Port Kelang. Typhoon Lionrock also affected the terminal operation in Japan, which affected the performance of the CHS.

 

The typhoon season in the Pacific Ocean affected the performance of MOL’s CBE service. Three typhoons (Mindulle, Lionrock and Malakas) hit Manila which caused port congestion in Manila and Laem Chabang. As a result, the CBE performance slipped from 77% in April to June 2016 to 65% in July to September 2016.

 

For the CBW service, the performance slipped from 62% in April to June 2016 to 58% in July to September 2016. This was primarily attributed to the typhoon season in the Pacific Ocean, Xiamen was closed due to typhoons Nepartak and Meranti, Busan was congested due to typhoon Lionrock and Osaka was affected by typhoon Malou.
