Injured While Working at the Port of Mobile? Schedule a Free Consultation Today.

Located on the Mobile River, the Port of Mobile is the only deep-water port in Alabama. With direct access to the Gulf of Mexico via the Mobile Bay, the Port of Mobile is one of the busiest ports in the entire United States – ranking as high as ninth in terms of overall trade volume in 2008. While its ranking has slipped slightly in recent years, the Port of Mobile is poised to see an increase in container ship traffic with the opening of the Panama Canal Expansion in 2016.

Along with major highway and railroad access, the Port of Mobile offers access to inland and intercostal waterways reaching as the Great Lakes and the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys. This makes the Port of Mobile a desirable access point for manufacturers, retailers and shipping companies targeting final destinations throughout the United States. The Port of Mobile is also a busy point of departure for coal, lumber and other materials and products that get shipped from the United States all over the world.
