Every continent phases these competitions. Thisphenomenon is more prominent in developed countries where ports do not onlycompete among regional ports but also compete with other ports within the samecountry such as in America, some European countries and part of Asia like inChina. However, the situation is a bit different when it comes to Africanports. Most African ports have poor infrastructures and limited technologicalinvestments and so port competitions in the African continent cannot becompared with that of the western ports. Despite these setbacks, there is asignificant amount of competition among these African ports, especially on aregional basis. The aim of this paper is to determine which port can serve as ahub port between the West and Central African ports along the Gulf of Guinea.The method that will be used to evaluate these ports will be a port indexingmethod.
