Port Freeport is a deep-water port resting on the Texas Gulf Coast only three miles from the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
In 2017, Port Freeport ranked 23rd among US ports for international cargo tonnage handled. Port Freeport offers an abundance of acreage for development with over 500 acres that are environmentally mitigated and shovel-ready.
During the past five years, Port Freeport has experienced exponential growth and is taking strategic initiatives to maintain that growth and provide the surrounding community with jobs and positive economic benefits. One of these initiatives includes deepening and widening the harbour channel depth to increase navigational safety and efficiency, and to accommodate larger vessels. Port Freeport already receives Neo-Panamax ro-ro vessels.
