What is it?
The Project44 Ocean Container Port Pair Delays (SONAR: P44OPPD) display the average number of days between originally scheduled and actual vessel arrival dates on the world’s most important ocean container trade lanes. These Project44 Ocean Container Port Pair Delays indicate sailing schedule compliance and service reliability at a lane-level on a monthly basis.
P44OPPD.CNSZPUSLAX, for instance, displays the average delay in days for ocean container vessels moving from Shenzhen to Los Angeles.
Who is interested?
Anyone dealing with ocean cargo, but especially shippers, international freight forwarders, ocean carriers, port authorities, drayage providers, and railroads.
What does it tell me?
The Project44 Ocean Container Port Pair Delays are excellent monthly indicators of ocean carrier service and port congestion on 24 of the most of the important trade lanes. These delays are in fact deviations from published sailing schedules and can be ‘added’ to adjust the transit times published by steamship lines to more precisely estimated times of arrival.
The Project44 Ocean Container Port Pair Delays are calculated by project44, the real-time transportation visibility provider, by rolling up shipment-level visibility data into actual average transit times that are then compared to published sailing schedules.
