New Temp-Controlled Facility for Port of Houston

[ February 18, 2016   //   ]

Phase I of a 300,000-sq.-ft. temperature-controlled cargo facility will be built at the Port of Houston Authority’s Bayport Container Terminal. The facility is being built by AGRO Merchants Group, which provides cold supply chain operations globally.

Upon completion, the new facility will add significantly to the state-of-the-art infrastructure that’s already in place at Bayport.

Bayport opened in 2007 and is one of the newest container facilities on the Gulf Coast.

Plans call for the new cold storage facility at Bayport to be a multi-use building that will include state-of-the-art warehouse space to handle storage and the import and export of chilled and frozen meat, fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables.
