Note:

All MOL operated vessels in the HSX-W service continued to achieve a strong on-time departure performance with a result of 100% in October 2016 to December 2016.

 

Four voyages of CHS-S service under MOL operation were delayed due to typhoons Chaba and Haima, which caused port congestion and low productivity in Kobe, Singapore and Kelang. Additionally, Tokyo was congested due to high cargo volume and the performance of the CHS-S service slipped from 77% in October to December 2016 to 69% in October to December 2016 as a result.
