Expansion of Port of Houston Facilities


According to a report in the June 27th edition of the USAPEEC MondayLine, facilities for handling chilled and frozen agricultural commodities will be expanded at the Port of Houston.


USDA will cooperate with the Port of Houston to obtain additional chassis to convey refrigerated containers and to store containers awaiting shipment.  The intended improvements will facilitate export of meat and poultry with the value of shipments exceeding $500 million in 2021.  Funds for the improvements were made available by the Agricultural Marketing Service using Commodity Credit Corporation resources.

Improvements will reduce the risk of delays and allow the port to use current capacity and provide expedited service to exporters.
