Success of SEACOR AMH, LLC's container-on-barge services at the Port leads to major expansion of container storage capacity. The public/private partnership between the Port of Greater Baton Rouge and SEACOR AMH, LLC continues to produce increases in the number of containers handled at the Inland Rivers Marine Terminal at the Port's North Line Road facility. In 2017, SEACOR AMH handled 8,018 containers there. In 2018, that number increased to 13,685 and continued to rise in 2019 to 14,000 containers. Due to this increase in container movement, the Port has undertaken an expansion of the Inland Rivers Marine Terminal's container storage yard. The expansion is estimated to cost approximately $4.5 million and will include 3.5 acres of concrete poured to expand the Port's container storage capacity. Port Executive Director Jay Hardman said, "We are excited about the success of the COB service and the opportunity to expand our capacity. Every container that goes down the Mississippi River to New Orleans for export is one less 18-wheel truck on our roads and bridges."
