This report examines the performance of the 14 largest container ports in the region based on two sets of criteria: operational performance and economic performance. To measure operational performance, the report benchmarks total time at port, waiting time at port, and idle time as a share of total time at berth.

The report identifies key drivers of port performance and examines how differences in performance across ports are related to those drivers.
