The Saint Paul Port Authority owns and manages four ports located along the Mississippi River in Saint Paul. Our goal is to protect the integrity of the working river, which has been a long-time contributor to the Saint Paul economy.

The Saint Paul Port Authority owns a majority of the multi-modal Mississippi River Terminal property, where commodities are loaded on and off of barges throughout the shipping season. Nearly 5.5 million tons of commodities passed through Twin Cities’ river terminals in 2014 including corn, soybeans and wheat. Imports included sand, gravel, fertilizer, salt, cement and coal.
