Member Spotlight: Alabama State Port Authority

Alabama’s only deep-water seaport terminals are located at the Port of Mobile, just 32 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. The seaport handles between 55 and 65 million tons annually making it the 10th largest U.S. seaport in total trade. The full service, public seaport terminals are owned by the Alabama State Port Authority and are served by major ocean carriers on Asian, European, Mediterranean, and Latin American trade lanes.  The public terminals are connected to two interstate systems (I-10 and I-65); five Class I railroads- CSX, Canadian National, Burlington Northern Santa Fe (Alabama & Gulf Coast Railroad), Norfolk Southern, and Kansas City Southern and the C.G. Railway service to/from Mexico.  The Port of Mobile connects to nearly 15,000 miles of inland and intracoastal waterways providing shippers with low-cost water access to ports along the Gulf of Mexico, Tennessee, Ohio, and Upper Mississippi river systems.  For more information, visit us at or on Facebook at AlabamaStatePortAuth
