At its May 24 public meeting, the Port Commission approved the purchase of nine new rubber-tired gantry container yard cranes at the Bayport Container Terminal.

The cranes are needed at the facility to meet current and projected growth in export business, provide equipment coverage for the port’s expanding container yard and maintain the highest service levels to industry, including vessel productivity and truck turnaround times.

“To keep Houston the premier port on the Gulf Coast, our staff routinely evaluates our cargo projections, terminal capacity, additional infrastructure needs and financing alternatives,” said Port Houston Executive Director Roger Guenther during the meeting.

“With this growth and anticipated resins growth coming later this year or early next year, we must continuously evaluate our capital infrastructure needs for the future, both near and long term,” he added.

The greater Port of Houston has an economic impact of over one million indirect jobs in the state of Texas, and these investments will help create even more growth for the region.
