Terminal Toolbox

Welcome to Port Houston’s Terminal Toolbox – your one stop for all customer shipping, container and operational information.

This toolbox is a customer portal that will help you track your container and get access to berth applications and safety manuals. Our various online systems allow steamship lines to make bookings, and brokers and truckers to monitor bookings. Online manuals for using our cargo tracking systems are also offered. When deciding which container terminal to use, steamship lines can see schematics of our cranes and review other essential information such as tariffs. Berth applications, vessel and holiday schedules are also available in this section.


Truckers can find detailed information on how to get in and out of our container terminals efficiently, the documents to have, and the procedures to follow on terminal. This information also includes maps and gate processes for each facility.

We understand how critical efficiency is to the many customers and users of the port. This toolbox was designed to support your terminal needs. To receive information about channel closures, please visit the U.S. Coast Guard’s Vessel Traffic Service website here.
