What is a port?
A port is a location where ships may load and unload merchandise near the margin of an ocean, river, or lake. At a port, passengers aboard ships can board or disembark. It’s also known as a port or a harbour. This type of port is similar to a seaport. A good port is accessible by boat or land. It’s also at a location where extreme weather, such as high winds or large waves, won’t harm it. Some ports are vital to trade, while others are vital to a country’s navy.

They are used to increase regional economic activity (internal) and facilitate seamless trade between the island or country (export and import), as well as the growth of the surrounding area. Ports are required to facilitate the selling of their products or the import of raw materials for their manufacturing. There is also a specific port that serves the company’s manufacturing needs.
