A port is a facility where ships can dock and transfer people or cargo to or from land.

Often breakwaters are required to be constructed to provide such shelters. Ports with deep water are rare and it is essential to carry out capital dredging, followed by maintenance dredging. Deep waters to handle larger economical ships of higher capacity and larger drafts.
Strata solutions for ground improvement are very versatile and can be designed and optimized for specific site challenges. They can be designed for very heavy loads and reduce differential settlements by a large margin thereby reducing operational costs and economise the subgrade design for the container yard.
