What is an Inland Port?

An inland port is a transportation hub located inland, typically on a river, canal, or other waterway, that serves as a point of transfer for goods and cargo between waterborne transportation and inland transportation. Inland ports can include facilities such as container yards, intermodal terminals, and warehouses, and they play a key role in facilitating the movement of goods and cargo from water transportation to inland transportation and vice versa.
