Ports are places where goods and people arrive or leave a country by sea. Logistics is the movement, management and storage of goods or a service. It is about ensuring that the right product gets to the right place at the right price in the right quantity and at the right time. Logistics also involves the movement of people by road, rail, sea and air, along with the operation of postal and courier services.
