Maersk Line increased its schedule reliability performance to 78.9%
between July and September up more than two percentage points from its
second quarter performance of 76.5%, according to the ‘Schedule
Reliability Insight Q4 2010’ report by Drewry Shipping Consultants.
While the industry average reliability increased to 60%, the strings
wholly operated by Maersk Line recorded a reliability performance of
91.4% quite an achievement, according to the Head of Operations
Execution, Asger S. B. Lauritsen. “On our own strings, we have shown to
be on a par with the some of the world’s largest and most punctual
airlines,” said Lauritsen.

“Scandinavian Airlines scored 92.8% during August and was crowned the
world’s most reliable, but it offers far more direct routes and only
tends to cover one weather zone.” “This underlines the scale of our
achievement and gives us the belief that we can close in on our target
of 95%,” Lauritsen says, and adds: “The constant improvement in our
schedule reliability is of great importance to our customers, and we're
proud to offer them the industry's most reliable service.” The major
restraining factor once again is the reliability of the strings covered
by Vessel Sharing Agreements (VSA) and slot charters. While it appears
that, in reliability performance terms, only Maersk Line’s partners
benefit from shared services, Lauritsen points out that only by
“imposing our way” in these alliances has Maersk Line been able to
retain its number one position. “It’s clear that we need to be stricter
with our partners if we are to hit 95% reliability,” he says. “But the
report shows that the efforts we have already put in to these
partnerships are starting to pay off.”
