Officials talk about international status for Natchez port

The Natchez-Adams County Port Commission has instructed its port director to look into what benefits being an international port of exit or entry could bring to Adams County.

The Natchez Democrat reports the move came Wednesday after Port Director Anthony Hauer told the board he’d received inquiries about the port’s status as a port of exit or entry from two entities — Genesis Energy and Natchez Inc.

Genesis Energy moves petroleum products from Canada through the Adams County port by rail and barge.

Hauer said he had thought that the port had permission to function as a port of entry or exit for the import or export of foreign goods.

Before moving forward, port commission members told Hauer to find out more about what getting the status would entail.
