I do not think there is anything to fix.
There are read/write speeds for all the devices (including ssd/hdd/pendrive/whatever) and they may differ. That can be the reason.

Reading from a drive is usually quicker than writing to it, no matter what kind of drive.

It is unlikely that the timings you are looking at are the times to tranfer to the actual device since buffers are involved and they will make the figures inaccurate.
