Global Shipping by Sea
Deep Water Port
There are two types of ports, deep water and recreational. Recreational ports are what come to mind first for most people. These types of ports are only available to boats that can navigate in water less than 20 feet deep.
Deep water ports, on the other hand, have to be at least 30 feet deep to accommodate large ships and barges. Each deep water port is optimized for global shipping orders. They have cranes to pick up large shipments from the boat and transfer them to the terminal. They have service platforms and are often frequented by recreational cruise ships.
