Definition: Goods unloaded

Maritime transport

Goods taken off a merchant ship.

Note: Transshipment from one merchant ship to another is regarded as unloading before re-loading.

Goods unloaded include national goods, transshipment goods (national or foreign goods leaving a port by sea) and land transit goods (foreign goods leaving a port by road, rail, air or inland waterway).
