Abstract:This paper analyses the productivity of a representative sample of African seaports in Angola (Luanda, Lobito, Nasmibe, Cabinda, Soyo, Porto Amboim), Mozambique (Maputo, Beira, Chinde, Macimboa da Praia, Mozambique Island, Nacala, Pembane, Quelimane) and Nigeria (Lagos - Apapa Port, Tin Can Island, RoRo Port, Container terminal; Port Harcourt, Delta Ports-Warri, Calabar Port, Federal Lighter Terminal-Onne, Federal Ocean Terminal-Onne) from 2004 to 2010, using a data envelopment analysis (DEA) approach. The paper finds that Nigerian seaports are the most efficient, followed by those in Mozambique and Angola. A discussion of the results is provided, in addition to the related policy implications.
