of everyday items used by retail customers including clothes,
electronics, household goods and furniture. Increasingly larger
container ships calling Port Houston require faster and larger
cranes for more efficient containerized cargo handling to help get
goods to retail stores and distribution centers sooner.

that this is an active working terminal; safety and security
directions must be followed. Rubber-soled shoes are recommended.
