World Port Source has documented the ports and harbors on navigable waterways around the world. The major waterways in each category are displayed here and a complete listing is available using the menu on the left.
Major rivers and their tributaries form waterway systems, which allow ship and barge traffic to travel thousands of miles from the ocean. Examples include the Mississippi River System in North America, the Yangtze River System in Asia and the Rio de la Plata River System in South America.
