Tenants, port users and stakeholders attended Port Houston’s “Port 101 Nexus to Success” workshop that covered a wide spectrum of disciplines related to real estate leases and port operations.
The Jan. 15 workshop included presentations from internal port departments including operations, environmental, security, risk management, channel development and more. The seminar offered collaboration and exchange with port users, tenants and stakeholders.
“Our mission is to be the global maritime leader in real estate,” said Chief Commercial Officer John Moseley. “We appreciate the partnership of our tenants and stakeholders that we work with, and this workshop is offered to share our processes and improve our collaboration efforts.”
Port Houston’s real estate department handles the leases, management, acquisition and sale of all property owned by the port. These can include properties at the Turning Basin Terminal, Barbours Cut Terminal, Bayport Terminal, the Richardson Steel Terminal, Care Terminal and the Jacintoport Terminal. Leased properties include Industrial Park East and West, Bulk Materials Handling Plant and Manchester wharves. In total, the port’s real estate portfolio includes more than 18,000 acres of various property types.
“It is important for us to engage with our stakeholders and tenants to further establish our relationships and provide a higher level of customer service. Partnership and communication is what makes the port so successful,” added Moseley.
