Outlines of the Period
For July-September, 2013(3Q 2013), on-time performance dropped in most trade lanes. One of the main factors was typhoon season, which affected all trade lanes. There were 14 typhoons menacing Asia in the 3Q. More than half of them were actually having direct impact on both our operation vessels and partners vessels. Singapore had a haze and suffered congestion then. It affected trade lanes other than Asia-USWC including our operation vessels. There was also a terminal strike at Yantian for a short duration from 1st to 6th September. Asia-USWC and Asia-USEC including our operation vessels still mainly suffered from this impact.
