Located at the head of navigation for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, it handles shipping loads through its waterway access to the Arkansas River via the Verdigris River. The Tulsa Port of Catoosa offers year round, ice-free barge service with river flow levels controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Located in a 2,000 acre (8 km²) industrial park and employing more than 2,500 people, the port ships manufactured goods and agricultural products from Oklahoma to the rest of the world.

This port is the largest in Oklahoma, as well as the only port that handles international cargo. It is located 15 minutes from the Tulsa International Airport.
