Companies interested in doing business with the Port can join their vendor database on the Port website.

These users gain full access to current project specifications and they can opt to receive notifications regarding new opportunities that become available at Port NOLA.
“We want to ensure our procurement process is transparent and clear so as many qualified businesses as possible have the opportunity to work with Port NOLA,” said Brandy D. Christian, President and CEO of Port NOLA. “The Port is inclusive of companies large and small. We value the increased competition in the marketplace and growing the capabilities and experiences of our local and small business community members.”
