Port Houston volume sets new record in July - again

Posted

Port Houston reached new heights with its biggest month ever recorded for container twenty-foot-equivalent units, according to a press release from the port.

This July Port Houston recorded 297,621 TEUs, an increase of 27% compared to July 2020 and an increase of 224 TEUs from the previous all-time record set in March 2021. Year-to-date Port Houston reports a 15% increase in TEUs compared to 2020, which was a record year for containers in Houston and surpassed the 3 million TEU mark.

July is the fifth month this year for double-digit growth in containers at Port Houston. Consumers are spending at unprecedented levels, driving an increase in cargo across all commodities even as the global supply chain experiences significant challenges like schedule disruptions, the bunching of vessels, and workforce strain.
