Reliable shipping with proven historical performance

The Port of Lake Charles

The Port of Lake Charles is the nation’s 10th-busiest port district. It’s based in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Port manages the Calcasieu Ship Channel, which runs inland 36 miles and extends out into the Gulf of Mexico another 32 miles. The Port of Lake Charles’ official name is the Lake Charles Harbor & Terminal District, which encompasses 203 square miles. It’s a port of choice for breakbulk, specialty and project cargo, ranging from International lumber shipments to global industrial needs. It’s also “America’s Energy Corridor,” serving as the No. 1 LNG export area of the world.

Calcasieu Ship Channel

The Port and the Calcasieu Ship Channel offer reliable shipping with proven historical performance—and are prepared for future growth. More than $108 billion in industrial projects have been recently completed, underway or announced on and around the Port and  Calcasieu Ship Channel areas because of their capabilities and capacity, making it one of the fastest growing gulf coast ports in the United States.
