Worldwide Ports

Seaports and airports are vital components of the freight system. They enable global trade and facilitate international economic activities.

In 2007, ports worldwide handled more than 8 billion tons of oceanborne exports and more than 25 million tons of international air cargo. This freight included raw materials, manufactured products, and everyday items found at businesses and homes, such as laptop computers, precision medical instruments, fl at-panel televisions, bicycles, and furniture.
