October 28, 2013, Tokyo – MOL today updated On Time Arrival Performance quarterly results for July - September 2013 for the major trade lanes as an effort of upgrading and improving the quality of services MOL Liner offers.

MOL has established a set of goals for KPIs including on time arrival performance in an effort to offer industry-leading transparency to customers and to showcase MOL's strength as a carrier that provides high quality service. (Press release on 2nd of March 2012) 

Measurement criteria are:

·         Scope of trade lanes is

East-West Trade:           Asia-U.S. West Coast, Asia-U.S. East Coast, Transatlantic, Asia-Europe, Asia-Mediterranean,

North-South Trade:       Asia-East Coast South America, Asia-Mexico/West Coast South America

Intra Asia Trade:                        Intra Asia

 

·         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.

Note:

In Q3 2013, the overall on-time performance of Asia-USWC services was hindered by typhoons in Asia during August and September, while MOL vessels achieved an on-time performance of 100%.

Although the terminal congestion in Algeciras slightly improved, Asia-USEC services’ performance maintained a similar level as Q2 2013. Port congestion in New York and Singapore was the major factor attributing to the lack of improvement for Asia-USEC on-time performance.

The congestion in New York also affected the on-time performance of Transatlantic services, resulting in lower on-time performance compared with Q2 2013.

Asia-Europe/Mediterranean schedule integrity was interrupted by typhoons in Asia and post-typhoon port congestion in Chinese ports.

II.            North-South Trade

·         Below services are measured

Note:

Adverse weather conditions in South Africa and port congestion at Paranagua and Montevideo greatly affected CSW service punctuality and its on-time performance in Q3 2013.

The overall situation of the CWL remained steady at 96%. One partner’s operated vessel was affected by a typhoon in Central China, which had a significant impact on the punctuality of CWL West Bound leg in Q3 2013, while MOL maintained an on-time performance of 100% on both the West and East Bound legs.
