The St. Louis County Port Authority was established by Missouri state statute for four purposes: promote the general welfare; encourage private capital investment by fostering the creation of industrial facilities and industrial parks within the port district; endeavor to increase the volume of commerce; promote the establishment of a foreign trade zone within the port district. The St. Louis County Port Authority is governed by a seven-member board of commissioners appointed by the St. Louis County Executive and confirmed by a majority of the St. Louis County Council.
