Competitiveness of seaports is a matter of interest not only to the economists, but also businesses, governments and international organizations. This data article provides quantitative data from the survey research on factors of competitiveness of container ports as perceived by shipping lines. The data was collected from around the world using an online questionnaire distributed through LinkedIn. The spatial dispersion of respondents corresponds approximately to the structure of global maritime container trade. The data provides full responses from 120 respondents. Each respondent assessed the importance of 20 predefied competitiveness factors on a scale of 1 (least important) to 10 (most important). For each respondent two additional characteristics are known, the location (continent) and the size of the company for which he/she works, measured by the number of employees. The data were used for a research article to determine the ranking of competitiveness factors for container ports entitled “Key factors of container port competitiveness: A global shipping lines perspective” [1]. The data can be used for another research to uncover relationships between factors of competitiveness (through e.g. factor analysis, cluster analysis), both for the whole world and for groups by continents or the size of the company.
