APL: On-time record in Trans-Pacific hits 94% in 1H 2011

Friday, August 05, 2011

Container shipping leader APL’s on-time performance in the Trans-Pacific trade was 94% for the first half of 2011.
In its mid-year report on 2011 vessel reliability, the Singapore-based carrier said today that APL ships missed their arrival window only seven times out of 114 port calls to the US West Coast from January to June 2011. APL attributed delays to unseasonal typhoons, heavy fog and the earthquake in Japan.
“Schedule reliability is the cornerstone of customer service in container shipping,” said APL President Ken Glenn. “We will continue to deliver a reliable product in the Trans-Pacific and pursue an even better on-time performance.”
The report measures reliability on the five Asia-to-US West Coast services operated exclusively by APL vessels. The Trans-Pacific is watched closely as a barometer of global trade since it connects North American consumer markets with Asian manufacturing centers.  APL’s report comes just as the traditional peak-season is set to begin in the trade.
The full reliability report can be found on APL’s website www.apl.com.
