Port of Houston up 11pc container volume in 2019 to 2,987,291 TEU
Date:2020-02-03 Readers:
THE Port of Houston posted an 11 per cent year-on-year increase in container throughput in 2019 to 2,987,291 TEU making it the fastest growing box port in the US, according to Piers Data.

"The year 2019 was another record year for volume at Port Houston's container facilities, and the third consecutive year for double-digit TEU growth," said Houston's port executive director Roger Guenther.

"Our strategy of relentless focus on customer service and continued investment in terminal capacity allows us to seamlessly handle rapidly growing volumes of international trade and support the local, state and national economies," he said, reported New York's Maritime Logistics Professional.

Laden container exports jumped 17 per cent in 2019, buoyed by a historic expansion in the export of raw polyethylene resin. Continued growth is projected, as the amount of resins being produced by petrochemical plants along the Houston Ship Channel continues to increase.

Loaded imports grew five per cent in 2019, driven by a broad spectrum of companies from sectors including retail, alternative energy, food and beverage and industrial materials.
