Map of Wisconsin Commercial Ports

Each year, Wisconsin’s 29 commercial ports or harbors handle more than 30 million tons of international and domestic cargo valued at approximately $2.4 billion. Along with agricultural products, these commodities include coal for our power plants, iron ore and wood pulp for our industries, cement for construction, and the salt that helps keep our roadways safe.

In addition, water transportation in Wisconsin fulfills a variety of passenger travel needs including an ever-growing cruise ship industry and six ferries. Along with enhancing the state’s tourism industry, ferries can also connect island communities with jobs, schools, hospitals and other destinations.
