The Container Port Performance Index 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the critical role that ports play in the global economy. It also highlighted the need to ensure business continuity and improve the resilience of the maritime gateways, as ports act as crucial nodes in the global logistical system, keeping supply chains moving, economies functioning, and people employed.
Developed by the Transport Global Practice of the World Bank and the Maritime & Trade Division of IHS Markit, the first global Container Port Performance Index is a comparable index of global container port performance that is intended to serve as a reference point for key stakeholders in the global economy.
This includes national governments, port authorities, development agencies, supra-national organizations and private operators of 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 Container Port Performance Index is presented by members of the joint World Bank and IHS Markit team that created it, as well as expert guests, who will discuss the scope, underlying data and methodology, as well as its purpose and uses.
