After a tumultuous few weeks in the wake of the Red Sea crisis, some form of stability has ensued with the round-Africa routings now normalising. "This was also reflected in the February 2024 global schedule reliability score, which improved by 1.7 percentage points M/M to 53.3 percent," says Sea-Intelligence in its latest update. (Figure 1)

On a Y/Y level, however, schedule reliability was 6.9 percentage points lower, the update added. The average delay for LATE vessel arrivals also improved to 5.46 days, roughly the same level as pre-crisis, which means that the increase due to the crisis has reverted. (Figure 2)

On a M/M level, seven carriers recorded an improvement in schedule reliability with the highest improvement of 9.7 percentage points recorded by Hapag-Lloyd.
