Caption: Loading of containers on and off cargo ships at a terminal in Rotterdam harbour. The ships carry their entire load in truck-size intermodal containers, in a technique called containerization. They are a common means of commercial intermodal freight transport and now carry most seagoing non-bulk cargo.A container terminal is a facility where cargo containers are transhipped between different transport vehicles, for onward transportation. The transhipment may be between container ships and land vehicles, for example trains or trucks, in which case the terminal is described as a maritime container terminal. Alternatively the transhipment may be between land vehicles, typically between train and truck, in which case the terminal is described as an inland container terminal.
