This study aims to evaluate the main Brazilian port terminals specialized in the operation of containers between the years 2010 and 2014. Therefore, it was applied Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and some of its complementary models, represented by the Cross Evaluation, in order to implement a peer-evaluation and improve the discrimination of the 100% efficient terminal; and a current model known as DEA-Game Cross Efficiency that combines DEA and Game Theory. This article proposes an adaptation to the original model, since it considers a radial output orientation, regarded as more compatible with the problem under analysis. DEA-Game was applied for the first time in port performance measurement and it was shown more suitable than the others, since the Decision Making Units (DMU) are seen from the perspective of a non-cooperative game and the results proved to be a Nash equilibrium.
