Intermodal Transit On-Time Performance

Methodology: On a quarterly basis, MOL publishes its intermodal transit on-time performance from three origin ports in Asia to six inland destinations in the United States.  The performance measures the on-time performance against the total transit time, including both vessel and rail.

The origin ports are:

Cai Mep, Yantian (PSX service)
Shanghai (PCX service)

The inland destinations are:

Atlanta (via BNSF Railway)
Chicago (via BNSF Railway)
Columbus (via BNSF Railway to Chicago, via Norfolk Southern to destination)
Dallas (via BNSF Railway)
Memphis (via BNSF Railway)
New York (via BNSF Railway to Chicago, via Norfolk Southern to destination)

    MOL Target:
    Reach 90% intermodal transit on-time performance.

MOL 1Q 2014 Results:

In preparation for the upcoming G6 service deployment, MOL (America) Inc. is reevaluating our intermodal service KPI.

During this period, the results of our intermodal transit on time performance KPI and missed vessel connections KPI won't be published.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

MOL 4Q 2013 Results:
MOL's overall performance was 56% for October-December 2013 for the three measured origin ports in Asia to the six measured inland destinations in the United States. MOL nearly performed above the 90% target for Memphis on the PSX. Overall performance was impacted by:

Late arriving vessels. PCX (eight vessels at least 11 hours late) and PSX (seven vessels at least 16 hours late).

It should be noted that:
(1)The PSX performance was 47% in October, 47% in November and 67% in December.

(2)The PCX performance was 72% in October, 57% in November and 45% in December.

(2)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 90% in these PSX lanes.

(3)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 81% in these PCX lanes.

MOL will continue to work with our rail partners and address specifics of operation with the terminals to improve our performance. Please note that MOL also reports our vessel on-time performance in a separate quarterly report which is available on CountOnMOL.com here and on MOLpower.com here.

MOL 3Q 2013 Results:

MOL's overall performance was 71% for July-September 2013 for the three measured origin ports in Asia to the six measured inland destinations in the United States. MOL performed above the 90% target for Memphis on the PSX and nearly reached the target for New York. MOL also nearly reached the target for Atlanta on the PCX. Overall performance was impacted by:

Late arriving vessels. PCX (seven vessels at least 15 hours late) and PSX (six vessels at least 16 hours late) were impacted by bad weather in Asia.

It should be noted that:
(1)The PSX performance was 74% in July, 81% in August and 56% in September.

(2)The PCX performance was 80% in September after falling from 73% in July to 63% in August.

(2)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 97% in these PSX lanes.

(3)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 89% in these PCX lanes.

MOL will continue to work with our rail partners and address specifics of operation with the terminals to improve our performance. Please note that MOL also reports our vessel on-time performance in a separate quarterly report which is available on CountOnMOL.com here and on MOLpower.com here.

MOL 2Q 2013 Results:
MOL's overall performance was 70% for April-June 2013 for the three measured origin ports in Asia to the six measured inland destinations in the United States. MOL performed above the 90% target for New York on the PSX and for Dallas on the PCX and nearly reached the target for Memphis on the PSX with an 89% result. Overall performance was impacted by:

Late arriving vessels. PCX (one vessel at least 15 hours late) and PSX (five vessels 16 hours late) were impacted by congestion and delays as a result of labor actions at the HIT terminal in Hong Kong.

Weather and derailment related service disruptions that severly impacted the network between the West Coast, Chicago, Dallas, and Memphis. Flooding across Missouri and Illinois in mid-April resulted in track washouts. The various interruptions severly impacted network crew, car, and locomotive balance. Construction at TraPac Los Angeles forced the usage of four cranes instead of 5 cranes which limited our ability to reduce congestion. Although overall intermodal transit on-time performance fell from April (71%) to May (60%), it significantly improved in June (79%).

It should be noted that:

(1)The PSX performance was 78% in June after falling from April (74%) to May (56%).

(2)The PCX performance was 80% in June. It also increased from April (65%) to May (69%).

(2)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 96% in these PSX lanes.

(3)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 83% in these PCX lanes.

MOL will continue to work with our rail partners and address specifics of operation with the terminals to improve our performance. Please note that MOL also reports our vessel on-time performance in a separate quarterly report which is available on CountOnMOL.com here and on MOLpower.com here.

MOL 1Q 2013 Results:
MOL's overall performance was 71% for January-March 2013 for the three measured origin ports in Asia to the six measured inland destinations in the United States. MOL did not perform at or above the 90% target for any of the origin/destination combinations. However, the result for the PSX to Memphis was 87% and the result for the PCX to Dallas was 86%. Overall performance was impacted by:

Late arriving vessels. PCX (three vessels at least 20 hours late and one vessel 87 hours late) and PSX (two vessels 40 hours late).

Chassis shortages, shortened work weeks due to holidays, labor disruptions and increased IPI volume due to labor concerns. These issues were most pronounced around and after the holidays and took a period of time to catch up with the backlog. Overall intermodal transit on-time performance improved in February (88%) and March (81%) versus January (49%).

It should be noted that:

(1)The PSX met the 90% KPI target in February and was 86% in March after performance was 46% in January.

(2)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 97% in these PCX lanes.

(3)Our rail performance, measured independently from vessel performance, was 97% in these PSX lanes.

MOL will continue to work with our rail partners and address specifics of operation with the terminals to improve our performance. Please note that MOL also reports our vessel on-time performance in a separate quarterly report.

MOL 4Q 2012 Results:
MOL's overall performance was 74% for October-December 2012 for the three measured origin ports in Asia to the six measured inland destinations in the United States. MOL performed at or above the 90% target for four origin/destination combinations. Performance was impacted by late arriving vessels: PCX (two vessels at least 87 hours late, one vessel 111 hours late, and one vessel 159 hours late) and PSX (one vessel 16 hours late). Labor disruption also impacted performance. However, TraPac Los Angeles was not directly impacted by the disruption, so we were able to maintain continuity of operation and relatively good performance. Further, significant congestion in the Los Angeles terminal contributed to delays. Specifically:

(1)The PCX lanes were negatively impacted by the Thanksgiving holiday and by four vessels reshuflling berth windows in December due to labor disruption. Our rail performance, when measured independently from vessel on-time performance, was 88% in these PCX lanes.

(2)The PSX lanes were impacted due to a weather related delay as well as increased terminal congestion reducing our overall drayage productivity. Our IPI volumes also increased as shippers shifted cargo from the East Coast to the West Coast in anticipation of a potential East Coast labor disruption. Our rail performance, when measured independently from vessel on-time performance and discharge/drayage, was 98% in these PSX lanes.

MOL will continue to work with our rail partners and address specifics of operation with the terminals to improve our performance.

MOL 3Q 2012 Results:
MOL's overall performance was 81% for July-September 2012 for the three measured origin ports in Asia to the six measured inland destinations in the United States. MOL performed above the 90% target for five origin/destination combinations and was within one percent of the target for one other combination. Performance was impacted by late arriving vessels: PCX (ten vessels at least one hour late, one vessel 49 hours late, and one vessel 30 hours late) and PSX (two vessels 16 hours late). Some of the vessels were late do to typhoons: PSX (week 32 and week 36) and PCX (week 35 and week 38). The Fourth of July, Bloody Thursday, and Labor Day holidays also impacted performance as well as significant congestion in the Los Angeles terminal. MOL will continue to work with our rail partners and address specifics of operation with the terminals to improve our performance.

MOL 2Q 2012 Results:
MOL's overall performance was 88% for April-June 2012 for the three measured origin ports in Asia to the six measured inland destinations in the United States. MOL performed above the 90% target for seven origin/destination combinations and was within one percent of the target for two other combinations. In cases of poor performance, the primary impact was four PCX vessels that arrived a shift or more late and one PSX vessel that arrived two shifts late. MOL will continue to work with our rail partners and address specifics of operation with the terminals to improve our performance.
