Dry ports have been round since the fourth century. They are an advancement on older ports in that they provide a new level of commercial management, support better customs checking, better land-sea transport links, larger container and warehouse facilities, reduce congestion and generally have better management facilities. The first middle-eastern drydock port was in Alexandria, Egypt.
A Naval Dockyard allows the construction of all kinds of ships, and gives control of the port to a properly appointed representative of the crown rather than the local merchants. Trade, however, continues to flourish as the docks are superbly maintained and dredged.
