Port of Chicago

The Port of Chicago remains the link between the inland-river system, the Great Lakes and the global marketplace. From Chicago, deep-draft commercial ships can reach the Atlantic Ocean through the St. Lawrence Seaway while barge traffic can reach the Gulf of Mexico through the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers. The Port’s direct access to the Chicago Rail Link, Elgin, Joliet,Eastern, Norfolk Southern, Chicago SouthShore and South Bend Railroads as well as to Interstates 90, 94, 80 and 57, make it a major intermodal nexus.
