Those ports are maritime ports (except for fluvio-maritime transports for which it may be inland waterway ports), coded with international classification systems such as UN-LOCODE (codification for ports and other places). Those ports can be grouped according to their geographical location by using international classification systems such as NUTS (Nomenclature for Territorial Units for Statistics - EUROSTAT).
