Yellow Creek State Inland Port is located in Iuka, Mississippi. The port sees cargo that is primarily made up of steel, iron, beams, and some oats. Because this is somewhat of a larger port, there are many different facilities for companies and maritime workers to use. They have three entire acres completely dedicated to loading cargo on and off of vessels. This cargo cannot be lifted or carried without the use of cranes, which the port also comes equipped with. There are two gantry cranes and three mobile cranes. There are truck scales for loading cargo for further transportation as well as 60,000 feet designated in a warehouse for dry storage of goods.
There are nearby highways and railways as well—the nearby rail service is Kansas City Southern. The main portion of the channel is 9 feet deep, which means that the largest vessel it can accommodate is a river barge. There are many services that the port provides to assist vessels. There is mooring assistance, towing, repair services, and even divers.
