Welcome and thank you for purchasing this 27th Edition of Guide to Port Entry.
First published in 1971, this publication has long been produced by port information specialists Shipping Guides Limited, now incorporated into the OneOcean Group.
Commercial ports and terminals play a significant role within the maritime landscape but with no two ports the same, understanding the varying characteristics of each port poses numerous planning challenges for mariners and their shoreside counterparts. Challenges such as understanding the policies and procedures implemented, facilities available and restrictions which might impact the timely success of a port call. Being prepared and having the right information to hand is essential for efficient planning - delivered with Guide to Port Entry.
The expertise of our port data team has highlighted the significant breadth of changes taking place in ports around the globe due to developments and expansion, as well as changes to port processes and the operational requirements of visiting vessels. Consequently, to ensure customers always have the latest information to hand, this edition marks the start of the annual availability of Guide to Port Entry.
Through our own research and contributions from the seafaring community, global port updates have continued unabated and 40 new ports have been identified. Improved information streams from maritime authorities in Brazil, Cuba and Philippines are also notable. This includes major updates to Brazilian offshore terminals, and entries for Algeciras, Antwerp, Baltimore, Gothenburg, Hong Kong, Jawaharlal Nehru, London, Long Beach, Melbourne, Osaka, Panama Canal, Rotterdam, Santos, Tianjin Xingang and Vladivostok.
In addition, significant improvements have gone into the geolocation data we offer, including locations of individual terminals and berths. While this is of great interest to our digital portfolio, this content is also now available to users of Guide to Port Entry, offering improved location accuracy when planning a port call.
I would like to thank the port data team and all those who have contributed to the production and release of Guide to Port Entry. An important thanks is also extended to the port and terminal community whose continued contributions ensure that visiting vessels have access to the correct information for their facilities.
As a final note, we welcome any comments and content suggestions so that we may continue to provide excellent products and services for the maritime community.
