Louisville's Premier 




Our terminal has: two barge fleeting areas, each with 30 barge capacity; ability to blend multiple coal to barge or railcar; capability to transfer other commodities and the potential to unload barges to rail.


The bulk commodity terminal transfers dry bulk commodities such as coal, grain, fertilizer and potash, from rail hopper cars to barges. 


The Port of Louisville coal terminal is the only coal terminal that is served directly by three major eastern railroads: CSX, Norfolk Southern and The Paducah and Louisville Railroad.



A planned industrial community on the Ohio River, Jefferson Riverport International is home to quality companies engaged in manufacturing and/or distribution. The fully-integrated port/industrial park/FTZ complex offers:

  • Public port facilities, including an operating general cargo dock, barge fleeting area and ground storage. 

  • Excellent truck, rail, air and water transportation, plus efficient intermodal transfer facilities. 

  • A Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) with financial incentives for importers and exporters of raw materials, semi-finished and finished goods. 

Riverport's fully developed transportation facilities complement Louisville's central location and make it one of the most accessible industrial parks in the nation, via three interstate highways, five railroads (three directly), and the Ohio River.

A new four-lane highway connects Riverport to the interstate system less than five minutes away. Louisville International Airport at Standiford Field, the area's major airport, is only eight miles from Riverport.

Jefferson Riverport International is one of the few inland industrial/port sites in the nation with single-line haul by three railroads: CSX, Norfolk Southern and Paducah & Louisville.
