Port Of Discharge is the place where all goods have to drop in at least one time. But Port of delivery is different, All goods come to the Port Of Discharge then they are delivered to the Port Of Delivery. The difference is clear. All goods come to the Port Of Discharge and they are delivered to the Port Of Delivery points.
