Port Access Routes

With the expansion of the Panama Canal in 2014 and the inception of Post-Panamax shipping, some non-competitive freight handling operations currently at larger ports are expected to shift to smaller ports, especially to those that have shorter ship-to-market routes. With a direct route north from the Panama Canal, the Port of Port St. Joe is a perfect candidate.

Access to ICW

Offers direct access to the U.S. Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, channel 12’x125’.

Access to Rail

AN Railway, owned and operated by Genesee & Wyoming Inc., serves the Port and connects with the CSXT Class I mainline.

Access to Interstate & Air

Direct access to I-10 via SR-71. Only 21 miles to Apalachicola Regional Airport via U.S. Highway 98.
