As the port informatization plays a more important role in the port construction, it is crucial and necessary to conduct an accurate evaluation to achieve sustainable futures for the port economics and information systems. This paper constructs the evaluation index of the harmonious development between port economic growth and information industry, and uses an interactive DEAHP model to evaluate the port informatization performance, which would relatively and comprehensively reflect the weights among all decision-making units (DMUs) and among index's attributes. Based on the data of Tianjin port from 2005 to 2012, the paper evaluates the coordinated development between port economic growth and information industry. It concludes that in the short run, there are fluctuations in economic coordination of port informatization, which then will move into a stabilizing direction during the coordination process. This paper focuses on the links and identifies key areas for future research of assessing the level of information between the ports. © 2014 WIT Press. Source
