HOUSTON – Port Houston has completed Wharf 6 of its Bayport Container Terminal Expansion Project.
According to a press release from Port Houston, the Port has seen double-digit cargo growth year over year.
“This new wharf will enable the Port to keep up with the new growth and demand and help reduce supply chain congestion by providing additional capacity to berth another vessel around the clock,” said Port Commission Chairman Ric Campo.
The U.S. Department of Transportation invested nearly $80 million toward the wharf and yard space at the terminal, building on other investments to expand the capacity and enhance the efficiency of the terminal, including rehabilitation of the north side container yards, rehabilitation of wharf three, and expansion of the truck gate.
The Houston Ship Channel is the busiest waterway in the nation, handling more cargo than any other U.S. port, the Port’s press release says.
