America’s Central Port

Aerial view of America's Central Port

America’s Central Port is located on the Mississippi River, three miles north of downtown St. Louis, Missouri in the center of our nation’s transportation network. The port is located adjacent to Locks #27 – the last lock on the Mississippi River heading south. Warehouses are located in a secured industrial park setting within Foreign Trade Zone #31.

Illinois Route 3, a four-lane limited access highway, is located immediately east and adjacent to the port and grants easy access to all six of the region’s major interstate highways (Interstates 44, 55, 64, 70, 270 and 255) within 15 minutes. 70 percent of the United States’ population and 62 percent of businesses can be reached in just a two-day drive from America’s Central Port.

The port is also perfectly positioned with respect to rail. The Granite City Harbor is served by Norfolk Southern Corporation. The southern portion of the property is served by Terminal Railroad Association, a Class III carrier that is owned by five Class I rail carriers: Union Pacific Railroad, Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway, CSX Transportation, Canadian National Railway and Norfolk Southern Corporation. The short line connection allows direct connection to these carriers. Port Harbor Railroad Corporation also serves ACP’s Madison Harbor facilities and offers 24-hour switching services.
