Full barge access to domestic and overseas markets.

  • Port of Nashville: Located on the Cumberland River, the port offers full river barge access to Ohio River, the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway and the Mississippi River at the Port of Memphis for access to the deep water ports of the Gulf of Mexico—domestic reach, international options. The Nashville Port Authority was folded into the IDB and can be contacted here: Nashville's IDB board 

  • PowerCom: While barge access is not currently available at PowerCom, it will be in the future.  We are in the process of converting the “dock” into a “port” to allow barge access.
