Transit Planning Publications, Continued
The Distances Between Ports publication contains information on ports of
entry for the world. It is useful and easy to use. Ports are indexed by
number and name and laid out in a tabular format. The World Port Index
should be used as a quick reference guide only. Up-to-date information
and specific planning information must be obtained from the applicable
Sailing Directions, Coast Pilot, or Fleet Guide.
Another useful publication that gives information concerning the distance
a ship must travel between two ports is Distances Between United States
Ports, published by NOS; it tabulates approximately 10,000 distances
along the shortest routes marked by aids to navigation.
