Car shipping at Tulsa Port of Catoosa
Shipping of cars to or from Tulsa Port of Catoosa is possible considering it is connected to the Atlantic via waterway systems. However, the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River System was designed for barges. Cars are shipped in container ships and RORO vessels – both of which cannot navigate to this port. A possible option is unloading the cars from a ship onto a barge and transporting the cars to the port. Unfortunately, although this option is economical in terms of fuel, it is slow – too slow that auto transport companies do not use the port either as an entry or exit point for cars.
For international car shipping in Tulsa City and the entire state of Oklahoma, car shippers transport cars overland to nearby seaports such the Port of Houston, Port of Beaumont, and Port of New Orleans. These ports have more efficient vehicle processing facilities, which the Tulsa Port of Catoosa lacks.
