Gate Information

Efficiency is
Essential at
our Gates

Port Houston operates two of the most efficient container terminals along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Recognizing the importance of maintaining and improving container performance, the Port is dedicated to linking supply chains, minimizing transport costs, and maximizing local, national, and international trade.

Container Terminal Gate Processes

To uphold this efficiency and further improve operations, Port Houston adeptly manages traffic flow and provides a truck registration program for easy and convenient yard tracking. Below, drivers will find the Port’s gate processes for entering and exiting both the Bayport and Barbours Cut Container Terminals:

To access the container terminals beyond our normal operating hours, please complete our Extended Gate Request Form.

Express Pass

Express Pass is a timeless appointment for truckers accessing Port Houston Container Terminals. The customer service portal allows trucking companies to initiate trucker transaction/s before arriving at the terminal. This gives truck drivers a dedicated “Express Pass” lane and automated entrance to the terminal. It also supports Yard Planning efforts to service drivers quicker.

Learn about the benefits of Express Pass to get through entry gates faster.

Beginning  June 1, advance reservations through Express Pass are strongly encouraged for all truck visits. Read more about this update here.
