Throughput : A measure of container handling activity. The two main categories of throughput are O&D, which is also often referred to as import and export, and transshipment. Every container shipped by sea is by definition an export container at the origination terminal and an import container at the destination terminal. A container that is transferred from one ship to another at some point during the journey is said to be transshipped, which gives rise to transshipment throughput at an intermediate terminal somewhere between the load terminal and the discharge terminal. Throughput includes the handling of imports, exports, empty containers and transshipments
