February 7, 2017 – Hong Kong – MOL Liner Ltd. today announced the On-Time Arrival Performance quarterly results for October 2016 to December 2016 for the major trade lanes as an effort of upgrading and improving the quality of services MOL Liner offers.

 

During the past five 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.

Ø  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

The following performance criteria were used:

Note:

MOL operated vessels in Japan to Hong Kong/Straits service (CHS) improved from 85% in July to September 2016 to 96% in October to December 2016, although port congestion at Singapore and Port Kelang continued to cause delays.

 

MOL’s HSX service slipped from 100% in July to September 2016 to 96% in October to December 2016 due to typhoon Haima but was still able to achieve a strong on-time arrival performance.

 

The performance of the CBW service slipped significantly from 58% in July to September 2016 to 4% in October to December 2016. Adverse weather and several typhoons negatively affected ports in Southeast Asia such as Kobe, Busan, Xiamen, Manila, Laem Chabang and Bangkok, which caused port closures and berth congestion. 

 

For the CBE service, the performance slipped from 65% in July 2016 to September 2016 to 23% in October 2016 to December 2016. This was also affected by typhoons in Southeast Asia. Laem Chabang, Manilla, Cai Mep and Busan were congested due to bad weather.
