Located at the head of navigation for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, it handles shipping loads through its waterway access to the Arkansas River via the Verdigris River. The Tulsa Port of Catoosa offers year round, ice-free barge service with river flow levels controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Located in a 2,000 acre (8 km2) industrial park and employing more than 3,700 people at over 65 companies, the port ships manufactured goods and agricultural products from Oklahoma to the rest of the world.
This port is the largest in Oklahoma. It is located 8 miles (13 km) from the Tulsa International Airport, and 15 miles (24 km) from downtown Tulsa. It is a fully equipped multi-modal transportation center served by both the BNSF Railroad and the South Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad. It is a major economic engine for the region and is responsible for more than one-third of all tonnage shipped in the State of Oklahoma.
In addition to the many private terminals for grain, fertilizer, and break-bulk cargo located along the port channel, the Port operates a 200 ton capacity overhead crane as well as a roll-on/roll-off dock.
