Louisiana’s maritime industry has always played the vital role of connecting people, goods and information worldwide.  Every day, the industry facilitates trade and commerce, creates jobs, helps secure our borders, provides energy resources, supports our military and serves as a steward of coastal resources. 

Onshore, the industry is supported by all manner of professionals in fields such as law, insurance, logistics, dredging, ship repair, security, environmental science, engineering, management, and workforce training.  As the home of the largest port network in the world, Louisiana serves as an entry and exit point that is vital to keeping our nation’s economy running.
