Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue – No Need for Louisiana Gulf Transfer Terminal

Associated Press

Professor of Global Studies and Geography Jean-Paul Rodrigue was interviewed by the Associated Press about the development of a Louisiana International Gulf Transfer Terminal that could accommodate container ships transporting all types of cargo. While it might be technically possible, Dr. Rodrigue says there is too much competition from ports in New York City and Los Angeles to make such plans feasible.

Dr. Rodrigue was also recently quoted in the Seattle Times in the article “Big cargo ship in Seattle signals big stakes as nation’s ports compete” about competition between US ports to attract large cargo ships.
