United Bulk Terminals Davant is one of the largest dry-bulk terminals in the United States. The facility is located on 1,134 acres (460 hectares) of land, at mile 55 on the Mississippi River south of New Orleans in Davant, Louisiana. UBT is the first dry bulk terminal inbound on the Gulf, which offers customers significant cost and time benefits by avoiding the logistical challenges of navigating ocean-going vessels through the congested New Orleans area.

UBT specializes in the handling of coal and petroleum coke and offers a full suite of ground-based service capabilities. Export product arrives via inland barge and is either transferred directly to an ocean vessel or put to storage on a soil cement pad. Unlike “midstream” operations, product being direct transferred is sent via the dock system through magnetic separators, and if the customer desires, can be mechanically sampled. The ability to offload and store dry bulk commodities gives customers the flexibility to manage market timing and product blending requirements. In addition, having significant ground storage availability allows vessels to be unloaded and reloaded quickly, minimizing port time and maximizing vessel turns.

The terminal also has over 900 acres (360 hectares) of developable land currently available for future expansions.
