The Port of Tuscaloosa is a very small river port located in Tuscaloosa and administered by the Alabama State Port Authority. Though the port is a small one, it is one of the larger facilities on the Black Warrior River. There are no railway connections at this port as they primarily focus on the shipment of dry bulk commodities, including lignite, coal and coal coke. The federal government and the City of Tuscaloosa share the ownership of the Port of Tuscaloosa; the operation of the port is leased out to Powell Sales and run by them since 1997.
