How to use "Porterage" in context?
Porterage is the act or business of transporting passengers and goods by boat.
Large cruise ships employ porters to help transport luggage, petition passengers for food and beverage, and ensure that everyone on board is accounted for at all times. Smaller vessels also rely on porters to transport passengers and cargo between ship and shore.
Porters are often found on Caribbean islands and along the shorelines of Florida, California and the Bahamas. They are also employed on large lakes in Central and Eastern Europe, such as the Black and Caspian Seas.
Porters often make their livings by charging passengers a fee for their services.
