    Leading the “Rise of
    the Third Coast”


Louisiana International Deep Water Gulf Transfer Terminal Authority (LIGTT) is envisioned to be transshipment and logistics “hub-and-spoke” system for containerized cargo.

A purpose of the hub-and-spoke system is to effectively address emerging challenges resulting from fundamental changes in the international container shipping industry.

The centerpiece of the system is a deep water cargo container transfer terminal to be located just east of the mouth of the Mississippi River where the Southwest Pass meets the Gulf of Mexico. The 2,000 acre site, with depths up to 108 feet, is owned by the State of Louisiana.
