Terminal Operator

The Port of New Orleans is proud to partner with Ports America and Terminal Investment Limited (TIL) on the new Louisiana International Terminal in Violet. 


Both TIL and Ports America have been valued partners of Port NOLA for decades, and this announcement represents their ongoing commitment to the region and State. Ports America is one of North America's largest marine terminal operator, and TIL is the investment arm of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), the world's largest container carrier. MSC already serves Port NOLA's gateway and has the largest container volume on the river.   

These partners are investing over $800 million towards the development of the Louisiana International Terminal. This demonstrates the industry's confidence in our ability to deliver the premier gateway in the Gulf of Mexico.
