History of the Port of New Orleans

The Port of New Orleans was established in 1718. It has been a major port for the U.S. throughout its history, and it played a key role in the American Civil War by providing a military supply base for the Union.

Today, the Port of New Orleans is one of the largest ports in the world for handling containerized cargo and coffee imports, and it is also a leader in exporting grain and scrap metal. The port’s parent company—the Port of New Orleans—is publicly owned, but it has three independent business units: the Board of Commissioners, which oversees all of the port’s operations; the Dock Board, which operates the docks; and the NOBFDC, which finances and manages capital projects.
