Ports are the conduits through which international trade flows, be it through the air or on the ocean. They typically are composed of numerous terminals operated by public or private port authorities and operators. Among the biggest issues they face today, especially as ocean vessels reach record proportions, is dredging of harbors to ensure adequate depth.
