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.

Our team is here to help support your business and supply chains during this critical time. We have a number of tools available for your convenience:

Vessel schedules for our terminals can be found here:
