Gauging Kansas City’s growing marine highway

January 22, 2017 – Kansas City’s river port re-opened some ten years ago. Since then shipping through the port has increased steadily.

On Friday, January 26th, the International Trade Council (ITC) of Greater Kansas City hosts a breakfast forum on the port’s growing successes.

Two of the key components of the presentation are:
• The role of KC’s capacity, cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness in making it a key player in the international market.
• KC’s regional and international connectivity enhanced by its marine highway.
