Hamad Port ranks world’s third most efficient gateway
Doha: Hamad Port has ranked the third most efficient gateway in the world on the World Bank and S&P Global Market Intelligence’s 370-member Container Port Performance Index for 2021.
The index considered the number of hours a ship spent at a port during each loading and unloading task throughout 2021, the year that saw unprecedented traffic at all seaports worldwide and a disrupted supply chain globally.
The analysis in its second edition highlighted the resilience and strength of the ports in the Middle East, which dominated several top rankings, and their strong performance amid the repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic.
Noteworthy, Hamad Port in 2021 received some 1750 vessels, handled over 1.54 million TEUs, over 1.3 million tons of bulk cargo and nearly 267.2 thousand tons of general cargo, in addition to receiving 45.5 thousand heads of livestock, and more than 72.2 thousand units of vehicles and equipment.
The index said several ports in the Middle East and East Asia dominated the ranking.
