MOL Liner Ltd. Announces On-Time Departure Performance Results for October 2015 to December 2015 for Key Services Calling at China Ports

February 1, 2016 – Hong Kong – MOL Liner Ltd. announces the On-Time Departure Performance quarterly results for October 2015 to December 2015 for key services calling at China ports in East-West, North-South and Intra-Asia trade lanes.  

MOL has established a 100% on-time departure performance goal (Press Release issued on July 15, 2015) to offer industry-leading transparency to customers and to showcase MOL’s strength as a carrier that provides high quality service. The performance measurement program in China is in addition to the Global KPI and Regional KPI launched four years ago by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd.

Scope of trade lanes and services

East-West Trade: Asia-U.S. West Coast (SE2-E), Asia-U.S. East Coast (SVS-E), Asia-Europe (LP4-W)

North-South Trade: Asia-East Coast South America (CSW-S), Asia-Mexico/West Coast South America (CWL-E), Asia-South Africa (SAC-W and SAS-W)

Intra Asia TradeJapan-China/Straits (CHS-S and HS3-S)

Measurement criteria are:

  • We measure vessel departure in China, within 24 hours of scheduled actual time of departure versus proforma. A voyage is regarded as on-time if it departs the last China port of call within 24 hours of proforma.  
  • In each trade, Table 1 covers all vessels in the above scope and Table 2 covers vessels under MOL operations.




MOL operated vessels in SE2-E service continued to achieve 100% on-time departure performance in October to December 2015.


SVS-E voyages were delayed due to a typhoon in Yantian and berth congestion in Colombo. The performance slipped from 100% in July to September 2015 to 91% in October to December 2015.  

No MOL vessel was deployed in LP4-W service in October to December 2015.




MOL operated vessels in CSW-S, CWL-E, SAC-W and SAS-W services achieved 100% on-time departure performance. In particular, SAC-W improved from 50% in July to September 2015 to 100% in October to December 2015.

The overall performance of CWL-E was affected by port congestion at Ningbo and the repair work of a partner’s vessel. As a result, the CWL-E performance slipped to 62%.
