Port Facilities

The Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal District is the 10th-busiest port district in the United States, according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers waterborne statistics.

City Docks

The Port’s City Docks facility is located 34 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico and is connected to the gulf by the 12-meter- (40-foot-) deep Calcasieu Ship Channel.

City Docks is a 200-acre facility that contains the general cargo facilities which include 12 deep water berths that can accommodate up to 12 vessels simultaneously, with more than 1.6 million square feet of covered storage space.

Berths 1-9 and berths 15 and 15B have a projected depth of 35 feet, except Berth 8, which has a projected depth of 40 feet. Berth 8 is used for bulk grains.

The height of the docks at MLW is 14 feet. Most warehouses are serviced by rail. Also located at City Docks is a bulk grain terminal operated by a private party. City Docks includes the Port Foreign Trade Zone 87.
