Strategic Plan

At the Port of Houston Authority, our vision, purpose and core values are the foundation for everything we do. This allows us to focus on what is important. How we meet our commitments and fulfill expectations will define our success.

In 2015, the Port Authority adopted the 2015 Strategic Plan that includes a new vision, mission, core values, and four key goals to guide the organization. The goals and objectives will help focus Port Authority efforts and resources and guide planning and decision-making by all Port Authority staff to fulfill our vision and mission.

MISSION:  To move the world and drive regional prosperity

VISION:  America’s distribution hub for the next generation

VALUES:  In 2014, PHA took the development of core values a stage further and sought input from the entire organization. The result was the commitment “We are READY” encompassing the values of Respect, Excellence, Accountability and Diligence, and the focus on “You”:                  

Respect - We treat each other, our customers and all our stakeholders with respect,
                  fairness and compassion. We are committed to openness and trust. We
                  take pride in diversity and respect people’s dignity at all times.

Excellence - We are dedicated to understanding our customers’ needs and delivering
                      excellent service, both internally and externally. We seek continuous
                      improvement, and the highest quality in our planning, delivery and
                      communication.

Accountability - We set challenging goals and hold each other accountable for
                            achieving them. We honor our commitments to each other, our
                            customers and stakeholders. We act with integrity and take
                            responsibility for our actions.

Diligence - We work hard and with determination in the pursuit of our goals. We
                     go the extra mile to find solutions to problems and take the trouble to
                     get the details right.

You - We do all this for “You” – whether you are an employee, a customer, a local
          resident or other stakeholder.
