Launch of the second comparable index of global container port performance

Presented by the World Bank Group and S&P Global Market Intelligence

The year 2021 highlighted in the starkest of terms the pivotal role port performance plays in the timely supply of goods to countries and their populations. The severe impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on global container port operations showed in no uncertain terms the very tangible repercussions of inefficient ports on their hinterlands and populations. In the short-term this can be in the form of shortages of essential goods and higher prices; in the medium to longer term, inefficient ports can result in inflation, slower economic growth, less employment, and reduced financial performance of importers and exporters.

Developed by the World Bank Group and S&P Global Market Intelligence, the Container Port Performance Index (CPPI) is a comparable index of global container port performance. The index is intended to serve as a reference point for key stakeholders in the global economy, including national governments, port authorities, development agencies and private organizations engaged in trade, logistics and supply chain services.

As that reference point, the CPPI is intended to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement in container port operations, and to stimulate a dialogue among key stakeholders and move this essential agenda forward.

This launch webinar for the second container port performance index will be presented by members of the joint of the World Bank Group and S&P Global Market Intelligence team that created the index, who will discuss the scope, underlying data, and methodology, as well as its purpose and uses.
