The Tulsa Ports (Okla.) announced September 24 that it has expanded to a second location in Inola, Okla.
In 2019, the port acquired 2,000 acres in Inola as part of a historic land transfer from the Public Service Company of Oklahoma. This investment allows the port to compete on a national and international level in terms of site location and growth for the industry. To reflect its expanded multimodal shipping capabilities, the port launched a new logo and updated website.
