Port & Barge Service


The Port of Muskogee is strategically located near the confluence of the Arkansas, Verdigris and Grand Rivers, at River Mile 393.8 of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, the nation’s most inland all-weather waterway, linking Oklahoma with inland ports on the Ohio, Illinois and Mississippi Rivers, and sea ports around the world, via the Gulf of Mexico.

The waterway is well suited for shipping a variety of bulk, break bulk and liquid cargo including iron and steel, industrial minerals, asphalt, petroleum coke, molasses, fertilizer, grain and other agricultural products, coal and construction materials. Considering the variety of barges available and the increasing use of containerization, almost any product is suitable for transportation on the system.

As many as 14 local industries depend on access to the Port and waterway. These industries have invested more than $2 billion in their facilities and have created more than 2,500 jobs with a combined payroll in excess $125 million annually.

Maybe it’s time your company considered the competitive advantages of a location at the Port of Muskogee. It’s not too late. More than 100 acres of land has been recently added to the Port’s Industrial Park and is ready for development.
