New Orleans at 300: Transportation & logistics


New Orleans has always been known for its music, culture and food. But did you know that over the last 300 years we’ve turned our unforgettable city into a premier location for transportation and logistics?

Our port is the fourth largest in the country, and we are the #1 importer of natural rubber, the #3 importer of steel and the #5 importer of plywood. The port supports nearly 400,000 jobs across the U.S. and generates $37 billion in national economic impact.

Additionally, MSY is the second-fastest growing airport in the U.S., growing 78% from 2006-2016.
