Score and methodology

This year, we have a completely revamped PAGI score. For our third release of the score, we incorporated valuable feedback from industry experts from ports as well as shippers and users of industrial real estate. The result is a more robust score that measures ports on 25 metrics. Each port now has a shipping and commercial real estate score, that combined, make up their 2012 PAGI score. Some of the new metrics measure availability of blocks of space, the age of existing real estate stock, readiness for post-Panamax ships, service lines calling on the port, and the size of market served.
