Ocean Carrier Reliability Continues to be a Challenge

coracle News

In April, only one-third of ocean carriers arrived on schedule. Sea-Intelligence Maritime Analysis tracks the percentage of on-time arrivals of container ships. Ships are considered late if they arrive one calendar day or more after schedule.

Before the pandemic, ships arrived on schedule between 70-80% of the time. Since the pandemic started, on-time arrivals have hovered between 20-30%, with marginal gains in 2022. This reflects the continued challenges the global supply chain is facing this year.
