Size and specialization as determinant of iberian port performance: new methodology to group different ports
The Iberian ports can be characterized in different types regarding the type of specialization, bulk cargo or general cargo, and size as determinants of efficiency. Focus is made on the gaps of literature about port efficiency regarding size and specialization. Data envelopment analysis (DEA) methodology is used. Conclusion about the existence of 5 port groups recurring to size and specialization variables, with significant different characteristics and performance.
