Kentucky Riverports

Hickman-Fulton County

The Hickman-Fulton County Riverport Authority (Hickman-Fulton Co.) has proved to be a vital economic engine. Hickman-Fulton Co. serves many industries by facilitating the movement of raw materials and finished product as well as providing services to the agricultural community.

Hickman-Fulton Co. was established in 1964 by ordinance of the City of Hickman and Fiscal Court of Fulton County. The port is adjacent to a natural slack water harbor at mile marker 922 on the Mississippi River, and is the only operating Kentucky public riverport located on the Mississippi River. The port property is in the City of Hickman and in Fulton County.

The Vision of the Hickman-Fulton County Riverport is to be a leader in commercial/industrial development and an economic benefit to its community through leadership, stewardship, and partnership in marine and industrial expansion by focusing on the retention and attraction of businesses and jobs as related to transportation, facilities, future development and the environment, and to be a catalyst for expanding the integration of marine, land, and rail transportation systems in a safe, efficient, economical, and environmentally sound manner while achieving these goals through effective planning, management, and marketing of the port's assets and facilities.
