Our moderate Western Kentucky climate allows for year-round service and operations without fear of supply chain interruption.
INLAND PORT FACILITY
Containerized shipping is an economical and environmentally friendly shipping method. With direct access to blue water ports and the Canadian border, our location allows access to over 65% of the U.S. population within one day’s drive.
Our team has extensive experience with break-bulk cargoes throughout our 50+ years of our inland port facility operations. Our 53-ton tower crane has enough power to handle any type of cargo safely and with great precision.
We operate Foreign Trade Zone #294, which provides incredible benefits to shippers, allows Zone to Zone transfers, and products may be brought into the site duty-free and without formal Customs entry.
We are the economic engine for the Western Kentucky Region. Paducah and the region’s investment in the river industry stand second to none. Paducah is considered the national hub for river transportation.
