Port NOLA Shipping Spotlight: Beads By the Dozen

Mardi gras

Mardi Gras-style beaded necklaces, once associated exclusively with seasonal pre-Lenten celebrations, are now a bona fide national phenomenon. From football games and theme parties to corporate events and even wedding receptions, from parades and festivals the festive strands have become a celebratory fashion statement.

Beads By the Dozen is a New Orleans-based company that offers extensive selection, superior customization expertise and full customer service for any type of Mardi Gras need.

Beads By the Dozen brings Mardi Gras to life for Louisiana, and Port NOLA is thrilled to serve as their global connector to bring Carnival to the masses. Mardi Gras beads and throws are an iconic part of parading and a necessary catch while attending parades and reveling in all that is this festive celebration.

Beads By the Dozen has recently taken advantage of Port NOLA’s direct-Asia ocean carrier services here at the Port. Port NOLA recently announced a second direct-Asia service this past September. In recent years, Beads By the Dozen switched from bringing their 100+ containers of Mardi Gras beads, plush throws, trinkets, feather boas and numerous other items each year through the Port of Los Angeles, and is now using Louisiana’s international container port, Port NOLA.

“Port NOLA has provided consistent service and reliability with scheduling and container arrivals,” says Beads By the Dozen owner Dan Kelly.

The Port is honored to connect Louisiana businesses to international markets and play an integral role in the Carnival experience. “Laissez les bons temps rouler – let the good times roll!”
