Southeast Rivers in the News: New Inland Logistics Hub

November 8, 2018: Mayor John Laney announced that Superior Inland Terminals, LLC has acquired a port site in Demopolis, Alabama previously occupied by the Miller Lumber Company on the Tombigbee River.

Superior Inland Terminals LLC said the facility will be used as an Intermodal Logistics Hub to service multiple “Raw and Processed” material markets throughout the Eastern United States.

Mayor Laney said this project is the result of a team effort by the Marengo County Economic Development Authority, Demopolis Industrial Development Board, The Alabama Department of Commerce and Century 21/Patty Snell and Associates and many other supporting agencies.

A 16-acre facility, the Port of Demopolis is located on the shores of the Black Warrior River, to the east of the city of Demopolis in Marengo County, and close to the confluence with the Tombigbee River.

From Demopolis, vessels can access the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers, the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. Rail service in the city is offered by companies such as BNSF Railway, Norfolk Southern Railway, and the Alabama and Gulf Coast Railway. Major highways in Demopolis include U.S. Routes 80 and 43. Several state routes are also nearby.

Norfolk Southern, CSX Transportation and BNSF Railway operate through Demopolis and Linden, Alabama. Norfolk Southern and CSX Transportation primarily service from the Gulf Coast to the Northeast and Mid-West while the BNSF Railway line transports freight west and into Canada.
