A dry port (sometimes inland port) is an inland intermodal terminal directly connected by road or rail or both to a seaport and operating as a center for the transshipment of sea cargo to inland destinations.

In bonded terminals, only customs clearance takes place, whereas in dry ports, all maritime activities including shipping takes place.

The difference is the absence of water in the case of dry port, otherwise they are the same. A dry port is located in the hinterland where there is no water.
