Car shipping through the Southeast Missouri Port
The Port of Southeast Missouri is a small river port that dock barges cruising the Mississippi River System. As such, you cannot ship cars through this port. The vessels handling auto cargo are large and require a deep-draft port or harbor with large berths.
A possible alternative for shipping cars through this port would be to load them on barges and transport them to a seaport where they will be transferred to containers and loaded onto a ship or transferred to a RORO vessel. However, auto transport companies do not use barges for car transport. Their slow movement cannot efficiently serve the needs of car transportation customers.
