Port Houston Jumps To Top 5 U.S. Container Ports

Sat Sep 01 17:31:21 CEST 2018 arnekiel

Due to continued strong growth in loaded containerized cargo, Port Houston has surged higher in the rankings of the top container ports in the United States. Port Houston, which has been expanding rapidly in recent years, has climbed to become the fifth largest container port in the U.S., according to JOC Piers data covering the second quarter of 2018. Port Houston handled 1,057,964 twenty-foot-equivalent-units (TEUs) during that period and catapulted up from the sixth spot. Port Houston is outpacing trade for the U.S. as a whole this year, led by strong imports, the data also shows. For example, during the first six months of 2018, Port Houston imports from the Trans-Pacific region jumped by 24 percent, a significant hike compared to overall U.S. Trans-Pacific imports, which increased by 5 percent.

The Port of Houston’s Bayport Container Terminal welcomed this week the arrival of three new Super Post-Panamax cranes, highlighting of the port’s $100 million investment in port upgrades to handle the increasingly larger ships calling at the port. The three 270 foot-tall Neopanamax ship-to-shore (STS) cranes are the first of two crane shipments Port Houston is to receive this week. An additional five cranes scheduled for delivery are rubber-tired- gantry (RTG) cranes.

Harvey-Related Dredging Of Houston Ship Channel Almost Done

Fri Mar 30 12:45:55 CEST 2018 arnekiel

A Coast Guard official says Houston Ship Channel dredging continues six months after Hurricane Harvey but removal of mud that washed into the waterway should be completed this spring. The Houston Chronicle reports Capt. Steve Nerheim said Wednesday that a small stretch of the water is still undergoing dredging to return the channel to its 45-foot (13 meter) operating depth. Nerheim, who’s director of the U.S. Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston Vessel Traffic Service, says the 52-mile channel should be back to its full depth in a month or two. The Houston-Galveston Vessel Traffic Service monitors and provides navigational information for the ports of Houston, Galveston, Texas City and about 10 miles of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.
