After a three hour maneuver up the Savannah River, you finally find yourself in the port of Savannah, Georgia, ready to get out of the ship and into the city.

As in most USA ports, also in the port of Savannah, you will have to obey some rules and regulation regarding movement inside the terminal. A shuttle bus service is not available in the port because some other cars are entitled to come inside and take you from the ship.

If the port container vessel you are travelling with (or just working on) is calling New York, most probably you will arrive in one of the ports belonging to the state of New Jersey, which is located opposite from Manhattan, on the other side of Hudson River. The most important ports from this area are Port Elizabeth, Newark and Raritan. Under these circumstances, visiting Manhattan is always very difficult to accomplish, even for those well trained travelers.
