Transportation

Domestic and global markets today. (Mars markets tomorrow.)

The path to Mars? It’s still under construction. But while the itinerary for the Red Planet is being developed, remember that when your operation needs rapid delivery to any location here on earth, Hancock County is the right-here, right-now, get-there choice.

Strategically positioned on the Gulf Coast, Hancock opens access to a population of 1.5 million within a 60-minute drive. And while the immediate market opportunities are impressive, Hancock’s multimodal logistics, combined with an abundance of routes, assures the accelerated domestic and global reach to put your company in the lead.

Race to markets, race to a more powerful bottom line, with multimodal options that include:

Highway:  Omni-directional access and speed.

Hancock’s location offers strategic domestic access in every direction, thanks to five Interstate and state highways: I-10, I-12 and I-59, as well as U.S. Highways 49 and 90.  On-the-go trucking services green-light rapid shipment of products and goods across the U.S. and around the globe, with the deep-water port of New Orleans only a 40-minute drive away.

Port: Multiple routes, major markets here and abroad.

A shallow draft port with transloading capability, ready to handle container, bulk and break-bulk cargo, Hancock’s Port Bienville connects transit operations to domestic and global routes and numerous strategic markets through the Gulf Intercoastal Waterway. The Waterway, which runs 1,300 miles along the Gulf of Mexico coastline from Brownsville, TX to St. Marks, FLA, offers port connections that include the Port of Mobile Bay and the Port of New Orleans, which opens domestic routes through the Mississippi River and global routes via deep-water access to the Gulf of Mexico. Here in the U.S. and around the world, Port Bienville delivers.

Rail: Class I Eastern access.

At the Port Bienville Industrial Park, the impeccably maintained rail infrastructure of the Port Bienville Shortline connects your operation to CSX Class I service for fast access to major markets in virtually every state in the Eastern U.S.

Stennis International Airport (KHSA): Thinking (and landing) bigger.

With an 8,500-foot grooved and lighted runway equipped to land the world’s largest size aircraft, the Stennis International Airport also offers an expanded realization of air travel and transport, including non-stop service supported by a state-of-the art air traffic control tower, Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS-3) and ILS with medium intensity approach. At the Stennis Million Air fixed base operator (FBO) the amenities and capabilities include well-appointed lounge and restaurant, aircraft fueling, air charter, hangar space and tie down.
