Denmark: Daily Maersk – Six Months of Reliable Service
Daily Maersk, Maersk Line’s revolutionary service promising absolute reliability on the Asia – North Europe trade has now been running for six months – serving over 900 customers and shipping more than 93,500 containers.
The service has delivered average reliability of 97% over the last six months, more recently reliability has exceeded 99%.
“We are extremely pleased to see the on-time delivery rate for Daily Maersk improving month by month. We are truly delivering on our promise of absolute reliability,” says Ole Pradsgaard, Daily Maersk Project Lead.
Maersk Line’s unique product offers daily cut off times for cargo loading (rather than weekly cut-offs); providing great flexibility for customers. It also measures reliability based on container availability for gate-out at the destination port and not the transit time for service.
The service has been gaining popularity in the world’s busiest corridors, in the corridor from Yantian in China to Felixtowe in England alone it has transported more than 17,000 containers in the first six months.
Daily Maersk has also helped reduce the carbon footprint of supply chain by producing approximately 13% lower CO2 emissions per container moved than the industry average on the Asia-North Europe trade.
