Federal Marine Terminals (FMT) has signed an operating agreement with Port Itawamba, increasing its presence in the southern region of the USA.

The facility is located in northern Mississippi on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway and has connections with destinations along the US Gulf Coast and into the US Midwest.

With the multi-year lease agreement, FMT will handle a variety of commodities including steel, bulk, forest products and projects cargoes.

“We are excited to expand our current footprint by partnering with the Itawamba County Port to help drive new revenue streams for the port and its community. Our strong expertise in logistics services will be an asset,” said Louis Saint-Cyr, president of FMT.
