DEA window analysis has been a great tool used in improving the economic impacts of ports through its efficiency analysis. This has been employed to ports found in West Africa, Europe, Asia ports; nonetheless, this has not been applied to Indian Ocean Island ports. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the port efficiencies of four island port countries found in the West Indian Ocean (port Reunion, the port of Colombo, Port Louis and the port of Toamasina). DEA window analysis is used to

Despite the measures were put in place to improve the efficiency of the port, corruption, unskilled labour and others are some inefficiencies that hinder the performance of the port. Implications and future research directions are also included in this study.
