Is shipping cars through the port of Vicksburg possible?
Like most inland ports along the Mississippi River System, Vicksburg is not a deep-draft port. As such, it can only dock small ships and barges. RORO vessels and container ships involved in auto transport cannot navigate to the port. The cargo would have to be transferred to barges before reaching the port. But, auto shippers prefer transferring the cargo to car shipping trucks instead of barges.
What are the international car shipping options in Vicksburg?
It is not possible to ship cars to overseas destinations through the port of Vicksburg. Therefore, auto transporters use the nearby seaports to serve their Vicksburg customers. They may use the Port of New Orleans, Port of Pascagoula, and Port of Gulfport. Of these three ports, the Port of New Orleans is often the best alternative. It is one of the busiest ports in the country and has contemporary auto cargo handling facilities including a RORO dock and ramp.
