DID YOU KNOW...you can ship a couple of bushels of wheat from The Tulsa Port of Catoosa to the Gulf of Mexico, for less than the cost of a first class postage stamp; that the port is the most inland, year-round-ice-free port in the U.S.; and that one inland towboat, pushing 12 barges is replacing 720 trucks driving on the roads!
LOK members and guests will experience a VIP tour of The Tulsa Port of Catoosa with a boardroom briefing and barge tour of the facility. The Tulsa Port of Catoosa is a singular combination of a multi-modal shipping complex and 2,000-acre industrial park resulting in an economic impact of $300 million to Oklahoma. The complex hosts roughly 60 companies and employs nearly 4,000 Oklahomans.
Located at the head of navigation for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System in Northeast Oklahoma, it is one of the largest, most inland river-ports in the United States. The Tulsa Port of Catoosa’s unique position allows companies to move millions of tons of bulk freight by barge each year and at a fraction of the cost and environmental impact of rail or truck. One thing is for “shore”; you will have a good time connecting with other LOK members!
