Does Biggest Mean Best?

A couple of my posts today discussed the TOP in a transportation category...

Top 5 (well 6) US Ports for containers
Top 5 North American Railroads

This poses the question about the biggest being the best?

Is the Port of Los Angeles the best, just because it is bigger than Long Beach? Is the west coast a better cargo destination because the top two ports are there?

Is the BNSF a better railroad because it beat the UP in revenue?

Leaders Count: The Story of the BNSF Railway

Of course, with all statistics the biggest vs. best discussion is a personal decision. The largest port and railroad will tout their status while the others will say, "it is just a matter of geographics".

Of course, to me the best thing is the debate which will never be settled
