In pace with regional growth, the Port of Lake Charles has added new facilities, attracting new cargoes and making the Calcasieu Ship Channel more active than ever.


Activity at City Docks continues at a brisk pace. This heavy project cargo was offloaded form the ship M/V Stellaprima. This 635 ton+ piece of cargo is handled efficiently at the Port the newly rehabilitated Berth #1.


Decades ago, the people of Lake Charles had the foresight to engineer the Calcasieu Ship Channel, and even if they couldn’t predict today’s massive economic boom, they understood that deepwater access to the Gulf would transform Southwest Louisiana into a thriving economic powerhouse.


Flowing through Southwest Louisiana, the Calcasieu Ship Channel is our economic artery, and it’s responsible for, on average, 46 cents of every dollar that comes into our pockets in Calcasieu and Cameron parishes.


The Calcasieu Ship Channel and the Port of Lake Charles are prime movers of Southwest Louisiana’s strong, growing economy.


The Calcasieu River Ship Channel is as important to Southwest Louisiana as the Interstate-10 corridor. This video features Maurice Brand, CEO of Magnolia LNG.
