Ocean Timeliness Indicator
Ocean Timeliness Indicators for TPEB on a Slight Upward Trend while FEWB Hold Steady
Flexport’s Ocean Timeliness Indicator measures the amount of time taken to ship freight from the point at which cargo is ready to leave the exporter to when it is collected from its destination port. The ocean shipping world tends to run along “trade lanes.” The two biggest trade lanes carry goods from Asia to North America and from Asia to Europe. The OTI captures timeliness on each of these.
The Methodology: The Flexport Ocean Timeliness Indicator (OTI) utilizes data from Flexport’s ocean shipping operations for an expansive view of a container’s journey. Updated on a weekly basis, it shows the time taken to transit from Cargo Ready Date at exporters’ gate to the Destination Port Departure date when products are ready to leave port to go to importers. Measures are shown for Far East Westbound (e.g., China-to-Europe) and Transpacific Eastbound (e.g., China-to-US) routes. More details about the OTI can be found in our background report.
Week to January 8, 2024
This week, we see a slight tick up in the OTI on the FWEB: average time went from 75 to 77 days across the last week. The OTI for the TPEB increased from 66 to 68. We will continue to watch this situation closely.
