Texas Ports

Welcome to Texas Ports

With enormous natural resources, Texas is a major agricultural state and an industrial giant. It is second only to Alaska in land area.


Within the Texas Ports, Port Houston is ranked first in the United States in foreign waterborne tonnage and in U.S. imports. The Port handles almost 70% of the containerized cargo market in the U.S. Gulf and 95.5% of the containers moved through Texas seaports. Ceres Gulf provides container stevedoring services at the Port’s Barbours Cut Facility. In addition, Ceres operates at the Bayport Container facility with our JV partner, Mediterranean Shipping Company. Together, Ceres handles a total of over 500,000 containers per year in Houston. At the Turning Basin Terminal/City Docks, Ceres provides RoRo stevedoring services, handling over 70,000 autos and RoRo units. Ceres also handles breakbulk and project cargoes at this facility.
