Container terminal is a place where containers transported by vessels arrive. It is primarily an area where marine containers are transferred for their further transport. Such transfer may take place between ships, barges or between means of land transport, especially between trucks and trains.
Container terminals are usually a part of a bigger port and tend to be located near major cities which are important due to their logistics, good road and rail connections.
Terminal is composed of wharves at which the vessels are loaded and unloaded and a general access zone where containers are loaded and unloaded on/off trucks and trains. Containers are stacked in the stacking yards, which facilitates the operations on the shore and in the general access zone while loading and unloading of ships continue.
