MISC | Cargo Airports built alongside harbours?

Is cargo airports ever built alongside a harbour for the posibility to load cargo between plane and ship?

No. There are no cargo airports I have seen just for that purpose, cargo is usually carried in cargo terminals at regular passenger airports.

DWC will be built next to Jebel Ali Port just for that reason, and interconnected with the National Railroad.

maybe we can consider Shanghai Pudong? its not close to the port, but there is a direct link plus PVG is among the busiest cargo hubs in the world.

Cargo that is not urgent to reach its destination usually travels by ship all the way since it is cheap to move. For urgent cargo, there's no time to waste and have it sit and wait for the cargo ship to fill up and head to sea. These would likely be transported by truck to the nearest airport for a quick exit.

It's highly unlikely cargo will move between sea and air modes.

In which scenario would it actually make sense to build both facilities closeby? Freight transportet on ships is significantly different from freight usually transported on planes, so interconnections usually wouldn't make sense at all.

It could be interesing in some cases where there's alot of coastal or inland shipping to have a small harbor with roll-on/roll-off facilities with dedicated ferries carrying trucks with air cargo.

But otherwise it's just the shared logistics facilities and hinterland connections that make it interesting to place an airport directly alongside a harbor from a cargo perspective.

Not really. By definition, air cargo has to be transported fast (otherwise no-one would be willed to pay the comparably expensive fares). Hence, putting air cargo on the slowest mean of transport for the "first" or "last mile" would be really as counterproductive as it can get. As long as there are other means of transport available, obviously.
Maybe such facilities exist in places like Malé but that would rather be the exception than the rule and due to very specific geographic circumstances.
