RESUMEN: La reciente crisis económica deja atrás los niveles de crecimiento en los tráficos soportados por las diferentes Autoridades Portuarias de nuestro país en las últimas décadas. En este contexto de restricciones presupuestarias, los gestores financieros de las infraestructuras portuarias deben ser más selectivos y potenciar los puertos más eficientes y líderes en su entorno. Por ello, el objeto de nuestro trabajo es analizar la eficiencia de los puertos pertenecientes al Sistema Portuario Español, agrupados en diferentes áreas geográficas, para poder identificar el o los puertos más eficientes en dicha región. Dicho análisis se efectúa aplicando la metodología DEA con tolerancias, que permite la introducción de incertidumbre en el análisis. ABSTRACT: The recent economic crisis has accentuated the decrease of the traffic supported by the different Port Authorities in our country, during the last decades. In this context of budgetary restrictions, the financial managers of ports infrastructures should be more selective and enhance the most efficient and leader ports in their environment. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to analyze the efficiency of the Spanish ports, grouped in different geographical areas, in order to identify the most efficient ports in those regions. Such analysis is performed using DEA methodology with tolerances, which allows the introduction of uncertainty in the analysis.
