A modern commercial port comprises:

  • terminals or "stations" where loading and unloading of vessels takes place,
  • areas sheltered from the swell (outer harbour), allowing vessels to carry out their manoeuvres,
  • a channel which links the outer harbour to the open sea and allows the vessels to locate sufficient depth of water in order to navigate safely.
