Among the inland ports we utilize, is the Port of Mount Vernon.
Port of Mount Vernon
The port of Mount Vernon is the eighth largest inland port in the entire country, and the largest in its home state, Indiana. It is strategically located about 153 miles shy of the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, both which drain their waters to the Gulf of Mexico.
The port occupies a massive area in acreage, stretching up to 1,000 acres. It initially specialized in shipment of coal, agricultural products, and chemicals sourced from Indiana. However, thanks to the direct seaway it provides through the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to the Gulf of Mexico, trade activities have gradually grown over the years. The 1000-acre port now offers car shipment through ocean freight. As a result, A1 Auto Transport Inc. offers shipping cars to or from Port of Mount Vernon through the Gulf of Mexico.
Features of Port of Mount Vernon
It is logistically positioned to efficiently serve the entire Southwestern Indiana Region and the surrounding areas. This is thanks to its access from far-off regions through Interstate 64 and U.S. 41 via the state highways 69 and 62.
