Abstract

This paper is interested to propose an alternative indicator to evaluate the ports productivity performance. This indicator is called the ports intensity productivity equation. The main objective of the ports intensity productivity equation is to evaluate the performance of ports as a whole. We try to include more variables and parameters that can be possible to study the ports productivity from a multidimensional perspective. First part of this paper is interested to study the impact(s) of ports on the economic growth of any country. Second part, we propose a new mathematical modeling to build the ports intensity productivity equation. Finally, we apply our mathematical model in the study of main ports of Singapore and Malaysia.

Keywords: ports productivity, Singapore, Malaysia
