Abstract: The economic development of any nation depends upon the availability of resources and the productive capacity of that country. The productive capacity depends upon the ability to move goods from one place to another place. In the modern economy, where large-scale production is the order of the day, goods have to be transported either in a semi-finished form or finished form. Similarly, with the development of territorial specialization, significance of international and coastal trade has come to prominence, besides other benefits. Thus in these two respects, the sea transport system speaks favourably over the air and surface transport systems. Transportation of goods is an essential feature of international trade. Ports and ships are inalienable elements of sea home transportation. Ports are the natural inlets and outlets of economy. From time immemorial, marine transportation has been the main gateway of world s sea-borne trade and more than 90 per cent of the foreign trade is carried on through ports. Nearly 75 per cent of the earth s surface is covered with water and sea, and therefore, have their impact on the pattern of international trade. Ports are the arterial nodal of a country s industrial and economic development.
