  • Receive Port: A receive port is a logical grouping of similar receive locations through which services interact with external partners by receiving data. You can create the following types of receive ports: One-way — used for applications that drop off a message and do not wait synchronously for a reply; Request-response — used with applications that require a response to a message

    Receive Location: A receive location is the combination of a specific address at which inbound messages arrive and a specific address of the messaging pipeline that processes the messages received at the first specific address. Receive locations are created in BizTalk Explorer as part of the process of creating a receive port. There are two types of receive locations: One-way- Used for applications that drop off a message and do not wait for a synchronous reply; Request-response- Used with applications that require a response to a message. We can say that they are the physical, design-time notion of a location (such as a URL) and an adapter type. A receive location in the Host node in the BizTalk Server Administration console, defines the receive functionality. 

    Send Port: A send port is the location to which Microsoft® BizTalk® Server sends messages or from which BizTalk Server receives messages. It also provides the technology that BizTalk Server uses to implement the communication action.

    Send Port Group: A send port group is a named collection of send ports that you can use to send the same message to multiple destinations in a single configuration. This is useful when you want to send a message to multiple destinations.

Receive Locations that the ones where one specifies the details about the transport to be used, the exact address where the message is to be delivered and any other specific properties particular to that transport type.
