[ February 11, 2016   //   ]

Preliminary operating and financial results show that the Port of Houston Authority had a remarkable 2015, setting new records in container movements and cargo tonnage and growth. In 2015, the Port Authority handled 30.5 million tons of cargo at its facilities, surpassing the record set in 2014 of 30.3 million tons (figures exclude bulk terminals leased to third parties).
“The success of the Port Authority is a success for all of our stakeholders and the community that we serve,” said Houston Port Authority Executive Director Roger Guenther. He called Houston “America’s distribution hub for the next generation.”
