The decision was made to totally shift away from moving cargo through the Port of Long Beach and instead move virtually all of Igloo’s import containers across the docks in Houston. The switch to all-water service represented a major change for the 1,200-associate company. But Igloo hasn’t looked back.

“Houston is a very well-run port. We found confidence in Port Houston’s ability to handle large container volumes through the port and Port Houston’s commitment to expansion, as well as the timely availability of containers.”

– Patrick Poole, Senior Director Supply Chain for Igloo

Home Furnishings retail giant IKEA cited two primary reasons for selecting Baytown for a new distribution center: the fact that Houston is one of the largest cities in the United States and proximity to the Port of Houston.

“We have had great success in pulling the needed containers very quickly. I have worked with other ports in the past and it appears as though we are off to a great start!”

– Alex Todd, Distribution Manager for IKEA
