Make us your home port.
We are located at the head of deepwater navigation on the Mississippi River, with a 45-foot shipping channel to the mouth of the river maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Our exceptional maritime infrastructure and connectivity provide direct access to ship, barge, truck and rail.
A strategic location.
Our facilities are situated at the convergence of the Mississippi River and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. We are linked to other major ports between Florida and Texas and throughout 15,000 miles of the Mississippi River inland waterway system as well as to the Gulf of Mexico and ocean trade lanes to the world.
