Located just north of downtown St. Louis, Missouri, on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River, lies a 1,200- acre intermodal business and industrial campus known as America's Central Port. Thriving at the heart of the United States' transportation network, the Port provides exceptional access to all three major freight transportation modes: river, rail, and road.

Owned and operated by Tri-City Regional Port District, the Port's business and industrial park contains development-ready sites ranging from 1-90 acres, 1.7 million sq. feet of warehouse space, 50,000 sq. feet of office space, and over 150 apartment units.

America's Central Port offers more than your traditional business park. Being the only full-service, public intermodal port in the region, tenants of the Port benefit from exceptional access to the Mississippi River, four interstate highways, and six Class I railroads.

The North Harbor operates year-round with 24-hour barge switching services. The mile-long slackwater harbor serves approximately 2,500 barges and three million tons of grain, steel, petro-chemicals, and other bulk goods annually. The South Harbor is under construction and scheduled for completion in 2014. This new off-channel harbor will offer Port tenants and customers access to open southerly barge navigation to the Port of New Orleans. Other current facility services include both dry and liquid bulk terminals, general cargo dock, and roll-on/roll-off dock.

The Port and their 70+ tenants are responsible for over 1,450 jobs in Southwestern Madison County. Operators of the Port handle over $1.1 billion in goods each year, and generate $9.6 million in state and local taxes.
