CONTAINER ON BARGE
Paducah offers direct water service to the U.S. Gulf coast via the Mississippi River and the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. We have excellent interstate connections with one day ground transportation to 60% of the nation’s population.
We host the northern most ice-free riverport with excellent water levels for year round service.
We are the grantee of Foreign Trade Zone #294 allowing zone to zone transfers benefitting users of imported raw materials for production.
Along with the Foreign Trade Zone, other benefits of barge shipments are:
- Safest, most secured method of transportation
- Uncongested waterways with the ability to expand
- River transport offers a significant reduction of the Carbon Footprint
