Venice, IL

     Our Venice, IL river terminal was built from a Greenfield Project in 2002.  This facility has seventy-eight (78) acres with ½ mile of riverfront.  It is located at Mile 182.9 on the Upper Mississippi River, 3 miles north of the Gateway Arch.  Beelman built this facility from the ground up.  This facility was designed for high productivity with large-bulk quantities.  We wanted to design a facility that would handle a high volume of truck-to-barge and barge-to-truck transportation.
