A terminal is a part of a port. A port generally describes the location where ships berth and conduct activity. Within a port there can be multiple terminals through which cargo passes from sea to land. A terminal instead refers to the specific part of a port dedicated to a certain type of activity, such as containers or bulks.
In Europe the five busiest ports are:
- Ports of Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
- Ports of Antwerp, Belgium.
- Ports of Hamburg, Germany.
- Ports of Bremen-Bremerhaven, Germany.
