Moving the world – efficiently.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky's full complement of well-developed terminals, riverports, enterprise zones, warehouse facilities, ports of entry, and foreign trade zones link with an intermodal transportation system that forms a network with the world. Containing nearly 1,100 navigable inland waterway miles, Kentucky is the waterway link between the Great Lakes, Canada, Mexico and the deep-draft ports of New Orleans and Mobile for shipments overseas.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky lies in the heart of the nation, at the hub of the nation's inland waterways. Positioned advantageously on both the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, its location offers unique advantages for efficient year-round freight transport of bulk materials, agricultural products, chemicals, minerals, metals, wood, manufactured goods, and containerized freight.
