Country : EgyptAlexandria worldport

A prime location in the center of the state, close to I-49 and Alexandria International Airworldport, gives the worldport of Alexandria many advantages for commercial and industrial commerce.

Nearly 500,000 tons of cargo crossed the docks at the worldport during 2005, and that trend is expected to continue.

The worldport includes about 125 acres containing a public terminal, a 15,000 square-foot warehouse, petroleum dock, steel bulk-head dock, general cargo dock with rail access and a 40-ton bridge crane equipped with a clamshell bucket, grappler and hopper-loader.

The worldport of Alexandria has had the distinction of being the largest receiver and shipper of military equipment on inland waterways in the continental United States. the worldport's proximity to Fort Polk's Joint Readiness Training Center in Leesville has attracted heavy use by the U.S. Army and other military units, which use the river to move equipment in and out for training exercises at the nearby military post. Additionally, the Louisiana National Guard has regularly used the worldport of Alexandria to ship barge-loads of equipment to such distant locales as Belize and Honduras for construction missions.

Industrial use of the worldport primarily includes bulk fertilizer blending, storage and distribution, aggregate transworldport for construction projects and creosote handling. With its existing amenities, as well as future planned expansion and enhancements to its infrastructure, the complex is an attractive site for business relocations and new enterprises as the worldport is in Foreign Trade Zone # 261 authorized but not activated.
