The Gulf Coast of Texas is at the epicenter of the chemical industry expansion with the Port of Houston playing a critical role in the success of this new import and export growth.
This new regulation helps modernize and drive efficiency in shipping in the Port of Houston and along the Gulf Coast. It reduces the number of trucks on the road by filling permitted loads to the maximum capacity, which reduces vehicle emissions and helps to reduce road wear and tear in the region. It also ensures:
- Future competitiveness of the Texas Gulf region, the Port of Houston and the international crossings
- Increased safety and productivity for container trucks
- Decreased road consumption associated with the growth in Texas manufacturing as a result of the Texas shale gas revolution
