Louisiana boasts the largest volume shipping port in the western hemisphere and fourth largest in the world at the Port of South Louisiana. Located on the Mississippi River between New Orleans and the capital city of Baton Rouge, it handles roughly 60% of all grain exports for the U.S. and services well over 6,000 vessels per year. Population centers around the major cities of New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Shreveport, and a sprinkling of smaller towns such as Lafayette, Lake Charles, Kenner and Bosier City.
The major metropolitan areas have developed a thriving film industry thanks in main part to aggressive incentives provided by the state. It has even garnered the name of “Hollywood South”. Of course, Louisiana is well known for its seafood, claiming the title of the world’s largest producer of crawfish, supplying roughly 90% of mudbugs consumed!
Also known as the Sportsman’s Paradise, Louisiana contains vast areas of deltas and coastal marshes and swamps. The land supports an enormous variety of plant and animal species, while the waterways, both fresh and brackish, teem with fish and alligator. Louisiana also has more Native American tribes than any other southern state, with four federally recognize and another ten recognized by the state.
The southern state of Louisiana is our next-door neighbor, and as such, is frequently visited by O’Connor cost segregation experts. We know Louisiana well, and would love to be of service!
