Mid-America Port Commission

Mid-America Port Commission is the largest port district on the Upper Mississippi and Illinois Rivers moving over 14,000,000 tons annually.

The Mid-America Port Commission was established by a three-state compact between Illinois, Iowa and Missouri in 1999.  It is the only three-state port compact in the United States.  Twenty-six counties are included in the compact.  It was established to help develop the most effective area for logistics in the nation for both domestic and global freight.  A major objective is to help regional businesses successfully compete globally with the help of the most efficient transportation system…linking water, rail, highway and air.

The Mid-America Port Commission has direct access to 3 Class 1 railroads, 4 regional airports, Interstate 72/172, Avenue of the Saints, Chicago-Kansas City Expressway, U.S. 34, and U.S. 67.
