Elevating the Mississippi River’s Role in Global Trade

From 1854 to 1960, the St. Louis, MO, USA region was the third-busiest port in the United States behind New York and Philadelphia. More than 3,000 steamboats would arrive and depart each year from the St. Louis levee. Today, it is still one of the most competitive inland ports in the nation, and its global impact continues to expand due to a new pact between key entities in the St. Louis bi-state region and the Plaquemines Port Harbor & Terminal District in Louisiana. This article highlights the vital role collaboration and innovation are playing in developing a plan critical to creating a potential link for containerized cargo to move between the lower Mississippi River and St. Louis region.
