quay. A term used in Europe for a wharf. Strictly speaking a quay is an artificial wall or bank, usually of stone that is parallel and contiguous to the shore of a harbor or the bank of a river. It will accomodate ships only on one side. Roads, railways, warehouses, sheds, etc., are parallel to a ship loading or unloading at its berth. In the US this type of structure is called a wharf.
A quay pier is a structure extended from the mainland or lying between two docks or basins, of sufficient dimensions to permit all the elements of terminal equipment to be arranged parallel with the ship; accomodating vessels on both sides but at two distinct quay units
