About the Port of Green Bay

The Port of Green Bay is the western-most port of Lake Michigan offering a direct route for shipping raw goods and material using the most cost effective and sustainable method of transportation available. An extensive network of highways and railroads provide a direct connection from the Port to regional markets and America’s Heartland.
There are 14 port businesses located along three miles of the Fox River. These businesses move more than two million tons of cargo on more than 200 ships each year. Port businesses handle dry bulk commodities such as coal, limestone and salt, bulk liquids like petroleum products, liquid asphalt and tallow, and breakbulk commodities including wood pulp and forest products in addition to oversized cargo like machinery and wind components. The Port of Green Bay is a vital part of our local economy, our history and our lives. It plays an important role in the transportation of goods and commodities that are critical to the economic health of the region. Opportunities for growth, whether using an existing port facility or developing a new property, makes the port an attractive option for businesses.

The Brown County Harbor Commission was created in 1956 in anticipation of the 1959 opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway system that made Green Bay an international port, providing mid-America with a direct water link to the Atlantic Ocean and the world. The Port of Green Bay has developed over its history into a vital and exciting asset to our area and will continue to grow to meet the future needs of our community.
