Rendered Fly-Over of the Port

The Louisiana International Gulf Transfer Terminal (LIGTT) is a historic and game-changing project which will create America's first large transfer terminal designed to handle containers, bulk cargo, and petroleum products entering and leaving the United States

This transmodal container shipping terminal, strategically located at Mile 0 of the Mississippi River in Louisiana, will serve as the centerpiece of a hub-and-spoke distribution system

The impacts of the LIGTT facility will extend throughout the interior of the United States, reaching 33 states along the 14,500 miles of the Mississippi River and its tributaries as well as ports along the northern Gulf of Mexico and throughout the Caribbean

The state-of-the-art, green-built facility will employ the latest in automated technology and design logistics while enabling security screening of 100% of cargo, critical to the long-term visions of both the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard

The superport will significantly increase the efficiency of America’s existing supply chain and will allow the new post-Panamax ships from the Panama Canal expansion – and even larger vessels – to enter an effective transmodal shipping system

LIGTT is modeled following the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Division (MARAD) playbook

The project is currently in the permitting and pre-construction phase

Creating Long-Term, Healthy Jobs Throughout America

This port facility is projected to generate 34,000 jobs during construction and operations in Louisiana in the next five years

The total jobs created in the United States upriver and down river operations and associated support services is estimated by economists and approved by U.S. CIJ to be approximately 187,000    jobs in five years
