  • 1. NOTE FROM THE CEO / Service is the cornerstone principle of our business. We at Terral RiverService believe in going the extra mile to ensure the satisfaction of our customers. Our attention to detail distinguishes us from our competitors and has helped develop long-term business relationships. In addition, we are proud of our people, their work ethic and the long heritage of being a family business built on superior service and integrity. We look forward to continuing our growth through sound business practices and efficient operations. HISTORY / The company’s roots stretch back to 1946, when John Terral founded a small farm supply business in Lake Providence, Louisiana. That company evolved into a network of several larger businesses that included a seed company, a farm supply company and a grain trading company. Terral RiverService was formed in 1992 and has grown steadily, adding and upgrading facilities throughout the Lower Mississippi region. Terral RiverService, Inc. is a river transportation service company specializing in the bulk storage and handling of dry and liquid materials along the Mississippi River system, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the inland waterways of Louisiana and southern Arkansas. With our increasing capacity for bulk liquid and dry storage, fleets of push boats and river barges, and state-of-the-art dock operations strategically located throughout the Lower Mississippi River Valley, we are outfitted to serve the needs of your agricultural, industrial or local business.

PRODUCTS Aggregates Limestone Rock • All sizes of Base Grades • Rip Rap • Agricultural Lime Cottonseed • Feed-grade whole cottonseed AGGREGATES / Through our five conveniently located sites, we are able to provide customers with quality limestone rock of all grades and sizes, including ag lime. We also unload rock and other products shipped by barge on virtually any navigable inland waterway with our custom unloading rigs.

COTTONSEED / Terral operates two origination points for cottonseed, with a combined total storage capacity of 23,000 tons. Our facility at Tallulah, Louisiana, in the Lower Mississippi River Valley specializes in transporting cottonseed by barge. Our other facility is located at Columbia, Louisiana, on the mainline Union Pacific Railroad, where we load boxcars and gondolas for transport by rail. Both facilities allow us to originate cottonseed from Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana.
