Seaport code lists & seaport lookup


Nauru Sea Ports

Main Port: A main port is a port with big capacity of cargo handling, acting as a hub or a gateway for goods transportation in its area. In most case, main ports are included on liner's freight tariffs and have regular container liners(mother vessels) to berth at.

Feeder Port: Feeder Ports are ports for feeder vessels to collect shipping containers from and transport to central container terminals or transshipment hubs (main ports), where containers are loaded to mother vessels for further transport.

Dry Port: A dry port is an inland intermodal terminal directly connected by road or rail to a seaport, operating as a centre for the transshipment of sea cargo to inland destinations.

City Port: The category “City Port” here means a city with one or more container ports included. When a city is used to represent all its ports, we will just call it “Port of *****”(like “Port of Shenzhen”).

Summary of NRINU

The Nauru International Port (Port Code: NRINU) is a seaport which is currently under construction on Nauru in the Pacific Ocean. With an anticipated opening in 2021, it will become the country's first international seaport and improve commerce and connectivity for the island nation. The $79.59 million USD project will be a climate change-proof port which will be vital in receiving necessary supplies such as fuel, food, and medical supplies. The new port, which was originally expected to open in December 2020, is anticipated to fit Nauru's needs until at least 2050.
Nauru had planned for a large, maritime port for over a century. To receive supplies, large ships would dock offshore and ferry cargo containers to the 111-year-old Aiwo Boat Harbor in a process that was unsafe, difficult, and inefficient.
After the project was greenlighted in September 2019, construction of the port began the following month at the site of the aged harbor with funding from the Asian Development Bank, Green Climate Fund, the governments of Australia and Nauru, and the Nauru Sustainable and Climate Resilient Connectivity Project. In preparation for the anticipated 2021 opening sixty local workers were trained in modern port practices such as safety, maintenance and stevedoring.
