The Weft™ Port Ranking balances key port performance indicators with additional data to calculate a ranking of container and cargo ports around the world.
Ranking global container ports is a complex science. Each stakeholder and interested party has differing views of what metrics are the most critical. What is more important - the number of vessels a port serves, average turn times, TEU volume, size and capacity or something else? All are important factors, but may not give a complete picture of the port’s value to your business.
With these considerations in mind, Weft™ aimed to rank container and cargo ports globally. Unlike other port rankings, which use self-reported data, this categorization is based on actual observations of marine shipping activity. The result is a ranking of the top container and cargo ports in the world.
The Weft™ Port Ranking can help business leaders identify opportunities for improvement in their supply chain:
HOW OUR RANKINGS WORK
The Weft™ Port Ranking is based on our proprietary calculation of live ocean shipping data called the Weft™ Score. In our system, each cargo port is mapped, including navigable water, terminals and berths. The live vessel movements within and around the port, in conjunction with external variables, like weather and ocean currents, labor disputes, historical trends, news and more, give us the data to calculate for
Weft™ Score is an overall rating encompassing scores for each of these metrics.
