The advantages of the Mediterranean Moor are:

• That more vessels can berth with restricted quay space.
• Cargo ships can work both port and starboard sides into barges.
• Tanker vessels can load/discharge through stern manifolds.
• Roll on–Roll off (Ro-Ro) vessels can operate stern ramps.

The disadvantages are:
• The vessel is exposed from the shore.
• Cargo ships are denied the use of shore side cranes.
• Loading and discharge must take place into barges.
• A boat is required to go ashore.
