About the Port

Home >> About the Port

The 2,300-acre Port of Caddo-Bossier is an industrial park and inland multi-modal transportation and distribution center located at the head of navigation on the Red River Waterway in Northwest Louisiana, about four miles south of the city limits of the City of Shreveport. 

The unique location advantages allow the Port to provide businesses here a link to domestic and international markets via the Mississippi River, the nation's largest river system, and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. 

PORT HISTORY
Since the 1830s when Captain Henry Shreve cleared the log jam called “The Great Raft,” Shreveport has served as a major shipping point, moving bales of cotton, tobacco and furs. Today, The Port of Caddo-Bossier is still a major point of river transportation, housing more than 13 corporations who all know how well The Port works for them. 

The Port of Caddo-Bossier welcomed its first load of cargo in 1995 and has received more than 5 million tons of freight since that time. 

MINORITY AND WOMEN OWNED BUSINESS PROGRAM
The Port is committed to fair bidding and contract practices for minority and women-owned businesses. Read The Port's ordinance here.
