Paradip and Vishakhapatnam Ports are located at a distance of 160 Km North and 260 Km South respectively of Gopalpur. The location is near the village Arjipali almost midway of a 22 km stretch of coastline between the town of Gopalpur-on-sea and Rushikulya river mouth on the North.

Road Connectivity
The national Highway No. 5 (Kolkata-Chennai) passes about 6 Km from Gopalpur Port site. State Highway 7 and 17 are also connected with NH 5 and provide good road network in the region. There are two access roads connecting Gopalpur Port area to NH 5. Government has already announced the National Highway from Gopalpur on sea in Orissa to Raipur in Chattisgarh. This highway makes it possible to connect the inaccessible and tribal areas of Ganjam, Kondhmal, Kalahandi and Naupada district of Orissa. This connectivity would facilitate transport of forest produce and other agricultural products to the port of Gopalpur on sea and to larger markets on the coastal areas.
