NO MOL vessels were deployed in SVS-E service.

No MOL vessels were deployed in LP4-W service since October 2015.

 

 

Note:

MOL continued to achieve 100% on-time departure performance in the Asia to U.S. West Coast service (SE2-E) in January to March 2017, maintaining a high standard of service.

 

Yet, the overall performance of the Asia to Europe service (LP4-W) further deteriorated to 8% in January to March 2017 because of the frequent berth congestion in China and Hong Kong. Dense fog in Shekou and Yantian also worsened the on-time departure performance.

Note:

The performance of MOL’s Asia to South Africa services (SAC and SAS) improved to 50%. The SAS service reached 100% on-time departure performance in January to March 2017. For SAC service, the performance was affected by dense fog and frequent port closures in Shanghai, Ningbo and Xiamen.

 

The performance of MOL‘s Asia to East Coast South America service (CSW) improved from 50% in October to December 2017 to 67% in January to March 2017. The berth congestion in Shanghai and Ningbo affected the departure schedule of CSW service.

 

For the Asia to Mexico and West Coast South America service (CWL) under MOL operation, the on-time departure performance dropped from 67% in October to December 2017 to 25% in January to March 2017 because of serious port congestion in Ningbo.

Note:

The on-time departure performance of the CHS-S service remained at 69%. The berth congestion at Tokyo and the suspension of pilot services at the Japanese ports due to strong winds adversely affected the departure schedule of the CHS-S service. 

 

MOL operated vessels in the HSX-W service continued to achieve 100% on-time departure performance in January to March 2017. This is the fourth consecutive quarter for MOL to reach 100% on-time departure performance with HSX service.
