Associated Terminals is the exclusive operator of the Port of South Louisiana’s Globalplex Intermodal Terminal which includes the cargo dock and terminal areas. The facility, which is part of a $30 million dollar master plan enacted by the Port of South Louisiana, is one of the premier deep draft cargo dock facilities on the lower Mississippi River. As the largest tonnage port in the western hemisphere, the Port of South Louisiana is strategically located at Mile 138.5 AHP on the lower Mississippi River in Reserve, Louisiana. The facility is equipped for the handling and storage of all bulk, break-bulk and containerized cargoes, as well as heavy lifts.
The Globalplex facility features a deep draft bulk and general cargo dock which measures 660 feet in length by 204 feet in width allowing for a highly efficient dockside transfer operation between ship, barge, truck and/or on-dock lay down and staging area. At greater than 47 feet of dockside water depth, the dock can service any vessels that can transit the Mississippi River. This dock is also equipped with two gantry mounted Manitowoc 2250 electric cranes. The cranes, rated at 150 tons each, can travel the entire 1,360 feet of dock. Also, there is a 65 feet wide by 700 feet long new finger pier adjacent and downriver from the general and bulk cargo dock.
The terminal facility offers 206,000 square feet of existing warehouse space and 177,000 square feet of paved storage pad providing ample space for the staging of cargo prior to shipment. The terminal has additional land available for development.
With rail access throughout the facility, the Port is internally serviced by the Canadian National/Illinois Central Railroad with switching access to the Kansas City Southern Railroad. The facility also offers easy access to Interstates 10, 12, and 55 and U.S. Highway 61.
From Panamax vessels to inland barges, the Globalplex Intermodal Terminal is the perfect location to trans-load and store all types of cargo involving ship, barge, truck and/or rail. Please contact us at (985) 536-4520 for more information on this “state of the art” facility.
