In March of 2005, the London Metal Exchange licensed Owensboro Riverport as a warehouse for delivery of NA380.1 aluminum alloy against its North American Special Aluminum Alloy Contract (NASSAC)…another testament of excellence.

Approximately 181 acres of the port's 285 acre site is FTZ activated.

The Riverport's Harbor Road property is dissected by a main line of the CSX rail system and is served by Kentucky Highway 331 to the Audubon and Natcher Parkways of the Kentucky Parkway system and U.S. Interstates 64 and 65 of the National Interstate system. Each of these major 4-lane highways is located within 70 miles of the Riverport. Interstate 69 is proposed to be constructed with 22 miles of the port within the next 10 years.
