Features of Port of Milwaukee
The port of Milwaukee is found in the Southeast part of Wisconsin, where the Menomonee, Kinnickinnic and the Milwaukee rivers join and flow into the Milwaukee Bay on the western shores of Lake Michigan; one of the 5 Great Lakes of Northern America. The port is strategically located making it the northern-most point an inland river barge can navigate to or from Houston, New Orleans, and all inland rivers between these two ports. This is due to the St. Lawrence Seaway that provides deep waters and easy passage to the neighboring port of Montreal.
The port has a total of 16 berths which allow for efficient car shipping through containerized car shipping and Ro-Ro modes. The entire port maintains a minimum draft depth of 26 feet, which is quite impressive considering it is an inland lake port. The draft depth facilitates shipping cars to or from Port of Milwaukee.
The port offers perfect access to two other joint lakes, Lake Superior and Lake Huron, offering an alternative means of transporting vehicles and other high tonnage cargo to neighboring states including Michigan and Minnesota. It also offers direct access to southern Canada, eliminating the need to rely on road transport. This is highly advantageous especially when it comes to transporting vehicles in bulk. Ocean freight offers cost pooling advantages. This is because several vehicles can be shipped in one trip using one cargo ship, hence cost-sharing the financial implication of the entire trip. The port provides shipping cars to or from Port of Milwaukee services at pocket-friendly prices.
The port provides a whopping 330,000 square feet of warehouse storage which provide safe keeping for cars waiting to be shipped out or those that have just been shipped into the Milwaukee port. The port dock is equipped with all relevant port equipment to facilitate handling of heavy cargo. Such include mobile cranes, Ro-Ro equipment, pedestal cranes, flat racks, and floating cranes, as well as heavy cargo loaders and off loaders.
The port facilities promote high vehicle cargo traffic through containerized and Ro-Ro modes of car shipping. The port handles well over 2,618,312 metric tons in annual cargo tonnage, ranking it 91st on the list of the busiest ports in the United States by trade numbers alone.
