The Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon is home to one of the largest maritime greenfield properties available in the Midwest region of the U.S. At 544 contiguous acres, this megabyte is situated on the Ohio River and is only 18 miles from Evansville, Indiana’s third largest city. Especially suitable for heavy industrial facilities requiring access to barge, rail and truck transportation, the site is also located within what the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ranks as the sixth largest inland port district in the country.
With utilities located adjacent, the site is also positioned in close proximity to the port’s bulk and general cargo terminals. The port’s multimodal transportation infrastructure also includes eight miles of railroad tracks that connect to the Evansville Western Railway with interchanges to five Class I railroads and heavy-haul roads that link to Indiana highways 62 and 69, which provide access to interstates 64 and 69.
Located only 153 miles from the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, the Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon serves the agriculture, energy and manufacturing industries in an expansive geographic region including the entire Evansville metropolitan area. With year-round access to the Gulf of Mexico and Great Lakes through the Inland Waterways System, the port connects the Ohio River Valley Region of the Midwest to the world with port companies shipping cargo to and from 20 countries and 44 states.
