Several kinds of tanker terminals are listed and described. They include alongside berths, single-, two-, three-, and four-point berths, as well as ship-to-ship transfer of cargo. Advantages and disadvantages of these berths are given and discussed. Factors that must be considered in the design of the berth are discussed, and they include the size of the vessels to be accommodated and any tides and currents in the area, among others. The size of vessel that each berth is capable of accommodating, and the type of location in which each berth is generally placed, are also included in each description.
