Coastal Cargo grew out of the amalgamation of two New Orleans companies, both with rich histories in the storing and handling of coffee. Today, it is one of very few waterfront operators left in the United States that are still an independent, family-owned and operated business. This independence allows Coastal Cargo to be flexible and responsive to the market, which is of extraordinary value during periods of market turmoil. Coastal Cargo continues to invest in both its human and equipment resources to ensure strategic advantage and bolster its position as a premier operator in New Orleans. With roots in the stevedoring and marine terminal industry going back to more than a century, Coastal Cargo holds a strong position in the Gulf market, and the reputation of being one of the best stevedores / terminal and warehouse operators in the region.
