New Orleans Terminal’s operations began at 7:00 AM, February 18, 2021 and were completed at 5:00 PM on February 19, 2021. 2,368 containers were discharged.

New Orleans Terminal’s prime location on the Mississippi River gives our customers the advantage of keeping their cargo moving via various modes of transportation with minimal delays. The terminal contains a 3,500 feet (1066.8 meters) berth and 45 foot (13.716 meters) draft is supported by six post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, two manned RTGs and eighteen top loaders. The landside RTG and top loaders container stacks are uniquely positioned on an angle to facilitate easier approaches and departures for truckers. Two ERTGs service 6,000 feet of intermodal rail.  There are fifteen reefer racks.

New Orleans Terminal’s
New Warehouse Management System (WMS)



Effective March 1, 2021

Despite the ongoing issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic, New Orleans Terminal LLC (NOT) has been hard at work refining and streamlining its process systems used daily in its extensive marine container terminal operations. Located in the heart of the Uptown Wharves at the Port of New Orleans, Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal Complex, New Orleans Terminal has a new program and system for its growing Container Freight Station (CFS). Transportation is ongoing and never stops so the New Orleans Terminal staff has taken their dedication, commitment, and reliability to a worthy task on a cloud based platform.

To better serve our customers, a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) has been developed internally as a proprietary system on a cloud based platform. By its nature, being built in-house, the NOT staff have full control over the WMS and its daily application in the field. As customers submit feedback and commentary, the WMS can be tailored and modified for a fully customized application. In addition, by being housed in a cloud-based platform, multiple users can directly update the WMS in real time on a desktop computer, a smart phone, or a wireless tablet. With wireless tablets already heavy use daily at NOT for various maintenance and repair applications, the institutional knowledge is readily at hand to modernize and digitize CFS operations with this new development. The WMS features include online quote requests, quick invoice turnaround times, transparency, ease of communication, and better internal reporting capabilities.

 If you are interested in learning more about the Container Freight Station at New Orleans Terminal, how the new WMS will interact with customers daily, or how this application was developed and implemented, please contact us today at [email protected].


NOT has also adjusted the process of handling CFS services/ payments. As of March 1, 2021, New Orleans Terminal requires pre-payments on all warehouse services which include stuffing, stripping, inspections, etc. (some exceptions allowed).
