Maersk retains crown as most reliable box line amid rumours of 20,000teu orders

From The Loadstar:

Maersk again topped the liner shipping reliability rankings last year, according to new research released by industry analyst SeaIntel.

The top two spots were retained by Maersk and Hamburg Sud in a year during which 19 of the 20 largest container shipping lines saw their schedule reliability decline, compared with 2013.

Maersk Line is also reported to be having discussions with Asian shipbuilders over an order for up to 10 container mega-ships worth a total of around US$1.5 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal.
