(NEW ORLEANS) — NOLA Terminal has hired Plaquemines Parish resident Anthony Barrois to serve as terminal manager for its flagship operations facility on the Mississippi River.
Located in Plaquemines Parish, NOLA Terminal’s state-of-the-art facility will be the first of its kind in the region, allowing access for large vessels and accommodating mixed-use terminal and storage operations for a variety of products and cargoes.
Barrois brings to his new role 33 years of experience in import/export terminal operations and full-service barge fleeting. He began his career in the early 1990s working as an operator, dock foreman and traffic dispatcher for Untied Bulk Terminals in Davant, La.
Building on that experience, over the next two decades Barrois advanced to operations supervisor and then operations superintendent for United Bulk. From 2019 to 2020, he served as the operations manager for United Bulk and Host Terminals and then went on to work as a terminal manager for Continental Cement and a terminal manager/facility security officer for Cooper Consolidated.
In a career that spans three decades, Barrois has developed a keen understanding of the river and the logistics industry on the Lower Mississippi River. He parlayed his port/dockside experience and equipment operating skills into roles managing stevedoring operations and inventory processing as well as positions directing terminal operations and barge and vessel loading/unloading operations.
“Anthony’s industry knowledge – coupled with his extensive managerial experience and aptitude for cultivating strong customer relationships – makes him a well-respected figure in the logistics industry,” said NOLA Terminal Chief Executive Officer Brian Miles. “His leadership and operational expertise have made him a valuable addition to the NOLA Terminal team.”
Barrois credits his parents for teaching him about the importance of working hard for what you want, and by the age of 12, his burgeoning work ethic had him cutting grass and doing yard work around his neighborhood. A lifelong resident of Plaquemines Parish, Barrois enjoys fishing, hunting, playing golf and spending time with his wife and three children.
