Port Crossing Opens in La Porte
We are pleased to announce the opening of our latest rail served port transload facility!
The 247,000 square foot facility is located in the port crossing complex adjacent to highway 146 and ideally situated between The Port of Houston's Barbours Cut and Bayport container terminals. The facility's proximity to the Port of Houston's two main container terminals and significant rail siding on the Union Pacific provides importers and exporters with a variety of logistics options that can be tailored to their individual needs. With the addition of port crossing, we now offer 850,000 square feet of cargo handling space adjacent to the largest container terminals on the Gulf. Given the Port of Houston's continued growth and the excitement associated with the completion of the Panama Canal expansion project in 2014, we are well positioned to support our clients needs now and into the future.
We are incredibly thankful for your continued support as we seek not only to provide logistics solutions, but most importantly to give back within our local community and around the globe! We are blessed to have an amazing staff that understands our responsibility to be good stewards with all that God has provided.
