Direct Access to Major Ports in Texas
Located in Houston, Texas, we have direct access to several major ports in the state, including the Port of Houston, Port of Galveston, Port of Beamont, and Port of Freeport. The Port of Houston is the largest port in the state, with a length of around 25 miles, and handles the majority of project and break bulk cargo in the U.S. The port also has a number of terminals for general cargo, as well as two large terminals for container shipping (Barbours Cut and Bayport).
The Port of Galveston and Freeport are primarily used for Ro/Ro ships that carry vehicles, self-propelled, and moveable cargo. However, they are also capable of shipping static cargo. In terms of tonnage, the Port of Houston is the busiest port in the country, with more ocean freight passing through it than any other U.S. port.

We are also in proximity to several other major ports in the Gulf of Mexico, including the Port of New Orleans, Port of Mobile, Port of Corpus Christi, and Port Brownsville. We regularly ship through these ports, which are collectively known as the “South Coast of the U.S.”

Be sure of your freight by being sure of your freight forwarder.
How to ship ocean freight via the various means and modes and where ocean freight ships to, from, and through are the elements of ocean freight. But there are other less tangible factors to consider. Does your freight forwarder have the passion to continuously improve and to always be open to novel solutions? And does your freight forwarder have the experience and the knowledge to know how to execute the improvements and the new ideas with professionalism? There is always a risk that things can go wrong in ocean freight shipping. But if you are continuously experiencing unexplained setbacks, it may be that your freight forwarder is more interested in billing for ocean freight than in knowing the ‘ins and outs’ of how to ship really well by ocean freight.
We know each port has its own way of doing things. Some are more stringent on air quality standards, others demand certain points of data for their shipments.
