Recent Updates

January 2023 LIT Update

In case you missed our email last month, Governor John Bel Edwards announced a public-private partnership between the State, Port NOLA, and leading global maritime partners to deliver the Louisiana International Terminal. Ports America and Terminal Investment Limited (TiL) will invest more than $800 million to build and operate the new terminal in St. Bernard Parish. 

Ports America, North America's largest marine terminal operator, and TiL, the investment arm of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), currently operate Port NOLA's Napolean container facility in New Orleans and have been valued partners of ours for decades. MSC, the world's largest container carrier, already serves Port NOLA's gateway and has the largest container volume on the river.

A Terminal Layout Based on Community Feedback

In October 2022, Port NOLA announced a revised layout proposal for the Louisiana International Terminal. Guided by community feedback, our engineering team worked hard to design a layout that keeps St. Bernard Highway along the river without compromising terminal operations. 

We aim to go above and beyond the federal requirements for public involvement throughout the permitting process. Sign up for email updates on upcoming community meetings and input opportunities.
