2022 has been an unprecedented year for the supply chain industry. Port Houston is moving historic cargo volumes and there’s no plans of slowing down. That is why Port Houston is investing a total of $1.1 billion in capital enhancements over the next five years, and in many cases expediting construction to better serve our customers.
Capital Enhancements & Strategic Investment Projects
Port Houston is modernizing and expanding our existing facilities by strategically investing in capital projects across all of our properties. These Capital Improvement Projects will enhance the Houston Ship Channel, Port terminals and roadways, as well as rail and industrial properties. Our goal is to create the most efficient, productive, and cost-effective system possible to move our customers’ freight to the marketplace.
Infrastructure enhancements include:
- Purchasing and relocating new STS cranes and hybrid RTG cranes
- Rehabilitating and constructing new wharves and container yards at our terminals
- Making improvements to the Houston Ship Channel, Bayport Ship Channel and Barbours Cut Ship Channel to make way for larger cargo vessels
- Adding truck gate capacity for better efficiency
