Tonnage handled at the Owensboro Riverport annually is approximately 1,000,000 Short Tons. Included in this tonnage figure are approximately 10,000 warehouse truck transfers and 1,500 warehouse rail transfers. Major commodities include aluminum, steel, magnesium, zinc, paper, grain, fertilizer, bulk commodities, project cargo, and general cargo. These products are moved to and/or from barge, rail, truck, conveyor, and pipeline…a truly intermodal port facility.

In December 2003, the Riverport acquired Foreign Trade Zone status for the Harbor Road Terminal facility from the Foreign Trade Zone Board and the U.S. Custom and Border Protection agency. The Riverport is also designated as a U.S. Port of Entry.

The Riverport serves as a licensed warehouse as a delivery point of prime aluminum traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange's COMEX Division aluminum futures contract. The New York Mercantile Exchange is the world's largest physical commodity exchange.

In March 2005, the Riverport received designation as a Licensed Warehouse for North American A-380.1 Aluminum Alloy on the London Metal Exchange's North American Special Aluminum Alloy Contract (NASAAC).

Owensboro Riverport is the only warehouse in the world serving contracts from the New York Mercantile Exchange and the London Metal Exchange.
