Container Terminal Performance Index – The World Bank

Many congratulations to the Management Team and all employees of Cornelder de Mocambique

“We are proud to inform that The World Bank recently published the new Container Terminal Performance Index and the Port of Beira stood out by achieving the highest ranking of all Container Terminals in Southern Africa, ahead of Ports such as Durban, Cape Town, Dar Es Salaam and Walvis Bay, as we ranked #270 globally.

This performance is a result of the strong investment that we have made in human resources, infrastructure, equipment and systems, as well as in improving the efficiency of the Port of Beira. Currently, we are expanding the container yard, as well as the entry and exit complexes.

Our target however is not to be the best of Southern Africa, but rather compete for efficiency with the best terminals in the world. Competing on ship turnaround time as a port with entry and exit restricted to 2 tidal windows per day is not easy. But we will continue to invest in people, infrastructure and new equipment and will deploy our own systems and of third parties to improve our efficiency.
We will also do all we can to, together with other port stakeholders and the regional authorities make the Beira Corridor as a whole increasingly efficient.

The Container Port Performance Index (CPPI) is produced by the World Bank and ranks ports based on a statistical approach, which is based on ship waiting time in port. In 2021, a total of 370 ports worldwide were assessed. Algeciras in Spain is the highest ranked European port, ranked 10th overall, while King Abdullah Port in Saudi Arabia is the highest ranked port globally. The rankings are based on a variety of factors such as efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness.”
