The Mukalla port is one of the smallest seaports in Yemen. It is located in the Southern region of the country and close to the Omani border. It faces the Gulf of Aden and primarily handles any overflow from the surrounding major ports (such as the Aden Port). It houses a large dry dock for repair and maintenance operations. It specializes in performing repairs on small and medium vessels due to the lack of appropriate facilities at Mukalla. Due to its location, it is sheltered under most weather conditions.

The coastal harbour can handle ships up to 500 feet in length and deals with bulk cargo. However, there are no adjacent railway facilities to aid in transportation between the surrounding cities and the port. Due to the small size of the port, there are very few cranes and other heavy lifting equipment. Ships entering the port are required to have alternative loading and unloading mechanisms, such as conveyor systems, onboard cranes, and derricks. There are storage facilities to receive and distribute the incoming cargo. The Mukalla Port mainly handles imports and sees very little traffic throughout the year.
