Abstract

Container terminal is an important element in the contemporary global economy; on the international market it is very important to know who operates efficiency. In this paper the efficiency of container port or terminal is benchmarked by Data Envelopment Analysis, which is a non–parametric linear programming method; the method identifies efficient or inefficient DMUs and diagnoses the factors that differentiate the performance of inefficient DMUs. This paper presents a model of DEA and examines some recent studies about the container port production efficiency
