MOL Announces On Time Arrival Performance Results for July - September 2014


November 11, 2014 – Hong Kong – Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) today announced the On Time Arrival Performance quarterly results for July to September 2014 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 to offer industry-leading transparency to customers and to showcase MOL's strength as a carrier that provides high quality service. (Press release issued on March 2, 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.

The following performance criteria were used:

  • Measured 8 services on MOL’s East-West trade route on MOL’s own vessels

 

Note:

Overall U.S. West Coast on-time performance decreased due to congestion at Vancouver.  However, MOL vessels’ on-time performance remains high since MOL operating services do not call Vancouver.

 

U.S. East Coast on-time performance has yet to improve due to the ongoing terminal congestion at Singapore.

 

Transatlantic on-time performance improved due to easing of terminal congestion at New York.

 

Asia-Europe on-time performance decreased due to worsening of terminal congestion at Rotterdam, Hamburg and Southampton.

 

Asia-Mediterranean on-time performance was yet to be improved due to prolonged congestion at Singapore.


 

II.                North-South Trade

 

  • The below services are measured:

Asia - ECSA (“East Coast South America”) (CSW)

Note:

Port Congestion at Busan and Singapore and inclement weather conditions (dense fog) at Shanghai negatively affected CSW on-time performance in Q3 2014.

 

MOL vessels’ CWL on-time performance improved to 88% in Q3 2014, from 67% in 2Q 2014, although severe port congestion at Shanghai, Ningbo and Hong Kong continued to cause delays.

 

 

 


 

III.             Intra Asia Trade

 

  • The below services are measured:

Japan – Hong Kong/Straits (CHS/HS3)

Japan – Philippines/Thailand (CBE/CBW)

 

  • The measuring ports are as follows:

 

 

 

Service

South Bound

North Bound

CHS (3/3)

Singapore

Tokyo

HS3 (3/4)

Singapore

Osaka

CBE (3/3)

Laem Chabang (R1)

Tokyo

CBW (3/3)

Manila (R2)

Osaka

 

 

(R1) For improvement of on-time performance, Laem Chabang single call was implemented from Q2 2014 onwards. Thus, the new Laem Chabang arrival time was set for the measurement of CBE South Bound on-time performance.

 

(R2) CBW South Bound Measuring port is changed from Laem Chabang to Manila in Q3 2014.

Note:

In Q3 2014, CHS and HS3 on-time performance decreased due to berth congestion at Hong Kong and Singapore.

 

In consideration of prolonged congestion, MOL implemented HS3 Port Kelang single call to improve on-time performance with effect from October 2014.

 

CBE on-time performance remained low due to prolonged berth congestion and low terminal productivity at Manila.

 

In consideration of the prolonged congestion and decreased on-time performance, MOL implemented Laem Chabang single call Q2 2014. MOL also deployed an extra vessel for schedule recovery measures for one cycle in July 2014 and have since added an additional ship from September 2014 to the service to ensure all necessary actions were being taken to improve our on-time performance.

 

CBW on-time performance was severely impacted by worsening berth congestion and low terminal productivity at Manila.

 

In consideration of prolonged congestion and decreased on-time performance, MOL deployed an extra vessel for schedule recovery measures in September 2014 and have since maintained the additional ship in the service to ensure all necessary actions were being taken to improve on-time performance.

 

In regard to Manila calling services, MOL is considering further counter-measures to improve on-time performance.
