Let’s explore the different types of port handling

Port handling is an essential field for transportation and logistics of goods. There are different types of port handling to meet the needs of transportation and logistics companies. The main types are storage, transshipment, loading and unloading, convoying, and transport.

Storage involves storing goods in containers, holds, or other containers within the port. Transshipment is the movement of goods from one ship to another without being unloaded onshore. Loading and unloading involves loading and unloading goods onto ships. Convoying is the transport of goods between the ship and dock. Lastly, transport involves conveying the goods to their ultimate destination.

ūüďć At SMMC, we are committed to providing the best port handling services by ensuring that every operation is carried out with great precision and meticulous attention.

La manutention portuaire est un domaine essentiel pour le transport et la logistique des marchandises. Il existe différents types de manutention portuaire pour répondre aux besoins des entreprises de transport et de logistique. Les principaux types sont le stockage, le transbordement, le chargement et le déchargement, le convoyage et le transport.

Le stockage consiste √† stocker les marchandises dans des conteneurs, des soutes ou d’autres conteneurs √† l’int√©rieur du port. Le transbordement est le d√©placement des marchandises d’un navire √† un autre sans √™tre d√©charg√©es √† terre. Le chargement et le d√©chargement consistent √† charger et √† d√©charger les marchandises √† bord des navires. Le convoyage est le transport des marchandises entre le navire et le quai. Enfin, le transport consiste √† acheminer les marchandises √† leur destination finale.

ūüďć Chez SMMC, nous nous engageons √† fournir les meilleurs services de manutention portuaire en garantissant que chaque op√©ration se d√©roule avec une grande pr√©cision et une attention m√©ticuleuse.
