Port Houston continues strong path towards growth
Jul 27, 2017: The Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority met in its regular session on July 25.
“Port Houston has already handled nearly 20 million tonnes of cargo this year, reflecting an increase of 13 percent from the same period last year,” said Roger Guenther, executive director. His report to the commission also included an account of other good news for Port Houston’s second quarter.
Container volumes increased by 14 percent compared to the same period last year and more than 1.7 million tonnes of steel crossed Port Houston wharves, reflecting a year-to-date increase of nearly 50 percent.
Also, during the meeting Port Commission chairman Janiece Longoria acknowledged the tenth anniversary of the Clean and Green Programme. Port Houston and its partners, including Shell Oil Company and several public agencies, began the initiative in 2007, and it continues to leverage the efforts of community service workers and the Buffalo Bayou Partnership to remove trash and debris from local waterways, including the Port of Houston Turning Basin. Since its inception, more than 20,000 cubic yards of these materials have been collected – trash and debris equating to more than 800 garbage truckloads, or covering a football field piled more than 12 feet high - and as a result did not collect in Galveston Bay.
