Oct. 24, 2012, Chicago – Attendees to NAMA’s CoffeeTea&Water (CT&W) event in New Orleans will have the opportunity to tour the New Orleans Port Authority and Dupuy Storage and Forwarding Corp. Rich in history, the port boasts a state-of-the-art facility at the center of the world’s busiest port complex and serves as the port of choice for moving coffee.

The tour is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15, from noon until 4 p.m. during CT&W, which will be held at the New Orleans Hyatt Regency Nov. 13-15.

According to its history, New Orleans has been a center for international trade since the early 1700s when it was founded by the French. Today, the Port of New Orleans' state-of-the-art facilities are at the center of the world’s busiest port complex, Louisiana’s Lower Mississippi River. The Port of New Orleans is the port of choice for moving many cargoes, including coffee, because of its proximity to the Midwest via 14,500 miles of inland waterways, six class I railroads and the interstate highway system.

One of the modern bulk processing operations located at the Port of New Orleans is Dupuy Storage, which was started in 1936 by John Dupuy, as a traditional coffee and tea warehousing firm, according to Janet Colley Morse, business development director for Dupuy and Dupuy's great-granddaughter.
