More than 200,000 tons per year of agricultural products are moved through the public port at Osceola. Osceola has a substantial inventory of potential industrial sites. Contiguous sites to approximately 600 acres of 500-year flood protected land are available with rail, highways, and utilities either on-site or within one mile. It has a slackwater harbor, a nearby interstate (I-55), and the Burlington Northern Sante Fe rail line.

Yellow Bend

Located directly on the Mississippi, Yellow Bend Port is a slackwater harbor that is easily accessible through a 250 foot wide entrance to a 350 x 810 foot turning basin. Its location on the Mississippi makes it one of the most convenient port locations on the inland waterway system. It is convenient to 1-40 and 1-30 in Little Rock and 1-20 in Tallulah, La. In addition to port facilities, Yellow Bend has large tracts of land zoned for industrial use.
