    Abstract

    This paper acknowledges the significance of ports operation as the driver of engine of growth in developing nations. It also accepted logistics as the formidable influencer of ports "Core Competence" and its management as the roadmap involved in the efficient and effective configuration of two important flows (product and information) which often facilitates distribution. The paper explored the problems bedeviling the various efficiency measurement techniques of performance at the ports. It identified the matching framework analysis as the appropriate method for measuring performance efficiency at the Nigeria ports cognizant of disproportionate problems attendant to the simple operations there. The application of MFA, matched the identifiable problems to the three major configuration of environment, structure and strategy over a period six years (2001-2006) therefore make ground breaking recommendations that could plummet the driving capability of the port for economic growth and development.
