MISC | Shipping airports with it's own sea port and railway?

Is there any airports with their own port that handles alot of cargo?

Could a ship moor alongside the port and it's shipment be transported aboard a plane just nearby?

And with it's railway it could put the cargo on that aswell.

So; any place where cargo can be stowed on to ship, train and airplane at the same time?

I am not sure if there are any airports exactly like that but the Newark Airport is pretty close to what you are describing since the Port Elizabeth Cargo Terminal is just across the NJT from the airport.

But cargo on a ship is not time-sensitive, while cargo on a plane certainly is. So there is no advantage to transfer cargo from plane to ship or vice versa. It makes no sense to transport containers, coal or oil by plane or mail or flowers by ship.

Well JFK, LGA and EWR (I think) are all owned by Port Authority of NY, along with Port of New York and PATH trains.

Isn't Dubai Airport supposed to be a transshipment hub for ships coming from Asia with cargo bound for Europe?

Then it seems pretty stupid having the ship be docked at a port, put on a truck, truck going from the port to the airport and then loading it on to planes.

Don't think so for maritime freight, since it's quite a distance away from the Suez Canal and the sea routes to Asia.
