Currently, our port congestion dashboard provides two metrics to estimate how busy the port is: Vessel Waiting Time and Vessel Traffic At the Port. We will increase the number of metrics to provide more details in the future based on your feedback; please don’t hesitate to contact us and share your use cases.
We use median waiting time, at and around the anchorage, for all the container vessels that are about to visit and visited the port during the week. Please, note that Portcast Port Congestion Index considers all the vessels that have started waiting already even though they have not arrived at the port yet. This gives the true picture of congestion during the week.
To get an accurate number we take into account all container vessels that visited the port.
