There are large differences across harbours for both cargo volumes handled and time spent on handling. Larger cargo volumes per ship seem to correspond with shorter time spent per unit of goods handled. This pattern seems to hold also when analysing harbours and different ship types. There also seems to be some relation between the size of the fee per port of call and the number of annual calls for a port, where lower fees seem to correspond with more calls. There also seems to be a relation between the price per lift with a crane, and average handling time per container, where ports that charge the most are the ones that spend least time per container.
