Maritime Transportation:

  1. Port of New Orleans: The Port of New Orleans is a crucial maritime gateway, serving as a major hub for the transportation of goods along the Mississippi River and connecting to the Gulf of Mexico. It handles a diverse range of cargoes, including containerized goods, steel, chemicals, and agricultural products.
  2. Port of South Louisiana: This port is one of the largest tonnage ports in the United States. It is strategically located between New Orleans and Baton Rouge along the Mississippi River and serves as a vital link for the transportation of commodities such as grain, petrochemicals, and steel.
