Executive Director Roger Guenther believes Port Houston has turned a corner.
“We had nine blank sailings in the month of May,” Guenther said. “But the worst should be behind us. We are aware of seven blank — or canceled — sailings to Houston in June and only three for the month of July.”
Container volume at Port Houston was down 16% year-over-year in May as the coronavirus pandemic continued to negatively impact imports and exports.
