All Water Services

Houston is America’s Distribution Center and the Largest Breakbulk Gateway in the U.S.

The Port of Houston Authority is the Gulf Coast’s leading gateway to North America’s fastest growing markets between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains. Our modern container terminals and multipurpose facilities can handle virtually any size and type of cargo; connecting world markets to America’s heartland quickly and efficiently.

We have developed an interactive world map listing Houston’s inbound and outbound all-water carrier services for both container and general cargoes. The map also includes road and rail transit time information between Houston and main U.S. inland hubs.
