Port Manchac

Port Manchac is an inter-modal facility that serves manufacturing and distribution clients throughout the Gulf South.

The Port is ideally located — the Canadian National (CN) Railroad’s north-south main rail line runs directly adjacent to the port’s property and provides regular service to the facility as needed. The terminal is also located directly adjacent to Interstate 55 with nearby direct links to I-12, I-10, and I-59, and outside of the congested Port of New Orleans and Port of Baton Rouge cargo markets. The 140-acre Port Manchac inter-modal terminal offers a prime inland location to store and trans-load bulk, break-bulk, neo-bulk, and containerized shipments by barge, rail, and truck. Barge service to the Port of New Orleans / Mississippi River is accessed through Lake Pontchartrain / North Pass.
