Port Houston owns eight public cargo terminals along the 25 miles of the Houston Ship Channel. Houston is the largest breakbulk port in North America and the largest container port in the U.S. Gulf Coast. The 52 heavy-lift and general cargo City Docks have put Houston at the pinnacle of industry rankings for steel and project cargo, offering 20,000 feet of docking space and capacity to accommodate cargo of 1,000 pounds per square foot. Also at the port, we are committed to both environmental protection and security — the first U.S. port to achieve ISO14001 and ISO28000 compliances. Port Houston is America’s distribution hub for the next generation.
