Washington County, Mississippi Economic Alliance


Make your move. Take the lead.

Highway, air, port and rail—Washington County promises multi-directional, multimodal speed to market.

In a rapidly moving Mississippi River location, your operation can reach faster in every direction, with strategic routes that take your goods across the nation and around the globe. Multimodal options include:

Highway: North, south, east, best. Washington County puts your shipping on a roll with pan-directional reach, plus 4-lane speed and convenience. Local access to U.S. Highway 82 and U.S. Highway 61 also provides fast, four-lane access to east-west I-20 just 80 miles away and north-south I-55 just 74 miles away.

Greenville Mid-Delta Airport: In the lead, on the fly. A former Air Force base, the Greenville Mid-Delta Airport is flight-ready 365 days a year, with a control tower manned seven days a week, ILS, two runways (7,000 ft. and 8,000 ft.) and commercial service by Boutique Air, providing direct flights to Nashville and Dallas. Boutique Air has partnered with United Airlines to extend their destination reach.

Port of Greenville: Go faster, flow faster. Located on Mile 537 of the Mississippi River, this well-equipped slackwater port keeps goods on the move and companies in the lead with multimodal highway and rail connections, and the high-performance services of a 60-ton bridge crane capable of spanning four barges; two 30-ton hooks and a 25-cubic yard bucket. Storage is superb thanks to a 22,000-ft. climate-controlled warehouse; several acres of concrete flat storage are also available. Mississippi’s largest port by tonnage is ready to provide large-scale performance for your shipping needs.

Columbus & Greenville Railway: Key asset for commodities shipment. First opened in 1878, this hard-working and historic shortline was purchased and revitalized in 2008 by Genesee & Wyoming, Inc., an experienced operator of more than 100 shortline and regional rail lines on three different continents. Today, Columbus & Greenville offers Class III service to Greenwood where the line interchanges with Canadian National Rail (CN), extending Class I service south to New Orleans and north all the way to Canada, where the line spans the continent, from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean.
