Supply chain reliability is critical especially in container shipping

Supply chain reliability is critical especially for containers, the average time across all potential trade routes from entering the port of export to exiting the destination port is 44 days, with a standard deviation of 10.5 days. About 60 percent of the time it takes to trade goods internationally is spent at sea. But the biggest delays occur when containers are held up at the origin or destination —at ports, airports, or multimodal facilities. Policies targeting these facilities, such as investing in port productivity, modernizing customs, and new technologies, can improve reliability.
