IRPT encourages basin meetings as a way for members in each basin to network and discuss river related issues affecting each region as well as collaborate on new business opportunities.

We value our members and understand their perspective is key to the industry’s healthy growth and operation of the inland river ports, terminals and intermodal centers which contribute to a more efficient national freight transportation system. As IRPT continues to be a voice for the industry as a whole, it is imperative that we connect with our industry leaders and understand their concerns as well as facilitate discussions to increase new business opportunities.

The basin meeting is being held in conjunction with the Arkansas Oklahoma Port Operators Association meeting. The day’s itinerary includes:


9:00 – 4:30                   AOPOA meeting

4:30                             IRPT Basin meeting
