Default Cotton in New Orleans

Dear steamboat enthousiasts,

I`m currently working on a project (diploma) that involves the history of steamboats and cotton shipping in New Orleans in the late 1800`s.
In the photographs and pictures I found the paddlewheelers were always `seperated` from the sea-going ships along the levees of this city. The cotton was stacked along the levee, coming from the decks of the riverboats. Now, how were these stacks moved to the sailing ships and steamers crossing the Atlantic Ocean? Were the ships moored further downstream? Was there a rail connection between these two locations?

Thanks a lot in advance,
