What is a Terminal?

In the context of shipping, a terminal is a facility where cargo is loaded onto or unloaded from a mode of transportation, such as a ship, truck, or train. Terminals can be located at ports, airports, and inland transportation hubs, and they can handle a wide range of cargo types and volumes. Terminals can also provide additional services such as storage, customs clearance, and cargo handling.

Some terminals are operated by shipping companies or carriers, while others are operated by independent terminal operators.
