Port Bienville Industrial Park

Port Bienville, MS

With a global-quality workforce of more than 700, the 3,600-acre Port Bienville Industrial Park (PBIP) is home to 14 leading companies carving out exceptional success across diverse sectors.

In fact, the world is cleaner and more convenient, and manufacturing materials are stronger and more reliable thanks to products created here, from the compounds of SNF, the world’s leading producer of water-soluble polymers deployed in industrial and wastewater treatments; to the resins of DAK Americas, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of PET resins, thermoplastic polymer resins used to manufacture durable drink containers; to the cutting-edge carbon technologies of Calgon Carbon Corporation that are cleaning the earth’s air and water through next-generation innovation.

Extra-strength supply chains: Polymers—long-chain molecules bonded together for strength and flexibility—are one key product of PBIP’s thriving clusters, and like those molecular chains, the Park’s network of logistical assets yield power and agility for global manufacturing operations.

An all-cargo connection: PBIP keeps products and materials on the move with multimodal assets that begin with the world-class services of Port Bienville, a superbly equipped shallow draft port with a 12-foot channel that spreads out 600 feet of dock space, three primary berths and an additional 300-foot berth and turning basin. Container, bulk and break-bulk—Port Bienville handles any and all needs with superior trans-loading capabilities.

Multi-market access: Port Bienville connects tenant operations to ports along the Gulf Coast Intercoastal Waterway, including the Port of New Orleans, opening Mississippi River routes and deep-water global access.  Leading industrial companies like General Electric Plastic, Kimberly-Clark and Calgon Carbon rely on Port Bienville for global supply chains that are rapid and cost-effective.

Multimodal options: The Park’s shortline rail connects to CSX which offers access to virtually the entire Eastern U.S., while heavy-haul trucking roads move goods to multiple connections including I-10, I-12, I-59 and U.S. Highways49 and  90 for nationwide coverage. And PBIP offers both the ways and the means for delivery with multiple logistics services including Warehouse Services, an industry leader in bulk transport; and SSA Marine, offering a full range of services from terminal management and stevedoring to rail yard operations and warehousing to trucking and off-dock operations.

Opportunity open now: Currently, 19 sites are available at PBIP, ready to be parceled and customized without delay. Ownership by the Hancock Port and Harbor Commission means rapid, responsive service from startup through future expansion.

Synergy + energy: Tap into the energy and cluster strengths of a swift-moving port and park, and reach higher goals and more markets with global performance and multi-modal momentum.
