Worst Ports of the World
The location of a beach plays an important role in making a good or bad port. Here is a list of worst ports of the world based upon their location, operations, and accessibility.
Karachi Port, Pakistan
One of the most important ports of Pakistan, Karachi Port has got a lot of catching up to do with its peers in terms of cleanliness, organization of operations and technology. The area around the harbor is surrounded by mangrove forests, and the port activities have raised strong environmental concerns in the region.
Port of Chittagong, Bangladesh
It is the most important port of the country, exports goods, rice, jute and other agricultural goods to the other parts of the world. However, it suffers from the disease of corruption and bribery is a major characteristic of this port. Transparency International reported in one of its reports that the Chittagong Port has annual turnover in bribes as much as 500 million dollars.
Port of Nouadhibou, Mauritania
The port is a famous trading point of the meteorites found in the great Sahara Desert. However, this port is more famous as the "Cemetery Port of Ships." More than 300 ships have sunk while approaching near the port in the last few decades. The major reason behind these accidents is discarded ships floating near the port area, just like stray ships. Corruption and bribery have lead to a disorganized operational structure.
Port Morseby, Papua New Guinea
It is the fourth worst port in our list because of the economic conditions of the region. Poor maintenance and governmental ignorance is also one major cause behind the port being one of the worst ports in our list.
Port Al Faw, Iraq
Post American invasion of Iraq, most of the Iraqi ports have been downgraded by many credit agencies. This particular airport is an oil port and oil conditions in Iraq are not a secret anymore. The war's aftermaths have put this port at the fifth position in the worst ports of the world list.
