Port of shipment is the port where a ship docks to unload its cargo. It is also known as “the place of discharge” or “place of delivery”. The term “port of shipment” is used when the goods are shipped from one country to another, and it is usually the last point at which the goods leave the country before they reach their ultimate destination.
