The Port offers excellent highway (I-195, I-95, I-93, I-495, Route 140, Route 24 and Route 128), rail, and air connections (New Bedford Regional Airport).

While the surface routes in and around New Bedford offer convenient access to the main thoroughfares of I-95 and I-93, the immediately adjacent I-195 corridor offers a less congested more streamlined route for freight shipping providing direct access to the heart of the Northeast markets.
