The terms "port" and "seaport" are used for different types of port facilities that handle ocean-going vessels. Global trade is largely dependent on maritime transportation into these destinations. There are major ports in six of the seven continents, from Port Said in Egypt to Australia’s Port of Melbourne, to the Port of Santos in Brazil. Asia is home to many of the world’s busiest seaports; the Port of Shanghai is the largest in the world in both cargo tonnage and activity, followed by the Ports of Singapore and Hong Kong.
