Info for Truckers

The Port of Houston Authority understands how important time is to truckers moving cargo. The process for trucks picking up and leaving containers at Bayport has been designed to be efficient and time sensitive. The information here should help truckers move through Bayport without encountering delays.

Safety is of utmost importance at all times. Please review this safety manual. It is available in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) in English.

Please watch this truckers safety video in English or Spanish.

Truck drivers and all port users are required to have a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) card in order to enter port property. The card is mandated by federal law and the program is administered by two federal agencies that are part of the Department of Homeland Security, namely the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the United States Coast Guard (USCG).

Begin the TWIC enrollment process online here.

The user's manual for the new N4 system can be found here.

The Port Authority has developed a mobile app that allows you to use your smart phone or device to check on the status of a container and its availability to be picked up.  It is very simple to use and the instructions can be found here.

This PDF diagram shows the layout of the Bayport Container Terminal.

Here are step-by-step instructions covering all kinds of transactions at Bayport.

The Port of Houston Authority uses a paperless hazardous pre-advise system. Hazardous documents from the driver at the gate will not be accepted. Please see the current requirements here.
