The chaotic shipping schedule in 2021 has caused many traders and logistics service providers to suffer. According to Sea-intelligence, the average reliability of global schedules in 2021 is only 35.8%, which is the lowest figure on record. This compares with 78% in 2019, before COVID-19 took place.

Corresponding to the plummeting ship schedule reliability is the skyrocketing average ship delay days. Since 2016, when the average delay days for late arrivals reached a low of 3.19 days, the number of delay days has risen year after year, rising to 6.86 days by the worst year, 2021.

So against the background of generally low reliability of shipping schedules, which shipping company is relatively more reliable?
It can be seen that Maersk is in first place with a schedule reliability of 46.4% in 2021. This is followed by Hamburg Süd with 40.9%. Four carriers in the top14 have a schedule reliability of 30%-40%, and seven carriers have a schedule reliability of 20%-30%. Only Evergreen's schedule reliability is below 20%. Meanwhile, all of the top 14 carriers were below the previous year in terms of reliability.
In terms of alliances, 2M (33.6%) is the most reliable shipping alliance in 2021, followed by THE Alliance (15.5%) and Ocean Alliance (8.2%). Compared to the industry average, only 2M is 3.5 percentage points higher than the industry average, while Ocean Alliance is 15.3 percentage points lower.
By route, the six major East/West trade routes all saw double-digit year-over-year declines in schedule reliability, with Asia-Europe and Asia-North America West Coast trade routes seeing year-over-year declines of more than 40 percentage points.

In terms of delays, all six trade routes follow the same general trend. 2021 sees the largest increase in average delays for LATE vessels on the Asia-North America West Coast, with delays of more than 12 days, while Asia-North Europe follows closely behind with more than 8 days.
