Abstract

The output of container ports has generally been measured by its TEU throughput, the number of TEUs interchanged from one carrier to another. Unlike TEU throughput, an increase in the container port output measure, TEU throughput per unit of TEU time in port, in the short-run time period (for which port infrastructure is fixed) does imply a decrease in the port’s technical inefficiency. This output measure is consistent with measurements utilized by container port managers for investigating reductions in technical inefficiency at their ports – ship loading and unloading service rates. The time that TEUs are in port can be obtained from RFID sensors that are attached to containers.
