Hamad Port world’s third most efficient gateway

Hamad Port has ranked the world’s third most efficient gateway on the World Bank and S&P Global Market Intelligence’s 370-member Container Port Performance Index for 2021, a statement from the Ministry of Transport (MoT) said.

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.

Hamad Port in 2021 received some 1,750 vessels, handled over 1.54mn TEUs, over 1.3mn tonnes of bulk cargo and nearly 267,200 tonnes of general cargo, in addition to receiving 45,500 heads of livestock, and more than 72,200 units of vehicles and equipment. The index said several ports in the Middle East and East Asia dominated the ranking
