Located on the Mississippi River at mile 652 AH, Helena Harbor is just 65 miles south of America’s acknowledged distribution center, Memphis, Tennessee. Its strategic location provides ready access to the nation’s heartland via nearly 15,000 miles of inland water transportation as well as to the Gulf of Mexico and ocean trade lanes to and from Latin America and the rest of the world.
The Helena Harbor Industrial Complex consists of 4,000 acres of flood-protected industrial sites centered around a two and a quarter mile, nine-foot-deep slackwater harbor. The harbor channel is 300 feet in width and features an additional 50 feet of berthing space over much of its length. A large turning basin is located at the head of the channel. The harbor is developing all essential utility infrastructure at this time.
