In its record year of 2019, the port of Houston handled 2990175 TEUs. Due to the import recovery at the end of summer, the import of Houston port will reach 2989347 TEUs in 2020.

The inflow of containers continued in the early winter. The number of TEUs in December increased by 4% year on year, from 253830 in 2019 to 264626 in 2020.

The substantial increase in December came from imports, up 26% year-on-year to 126771 TEUs. This made the import volume of the port of Houston the second highest in history. By the way, the best month for import shipment is October.

"We are proud to be able to keep the supply chain running and help deliver goods to consumers. What people need to get through our docks, such as medical supplies and food, and e-commerce goods at home, "Houston port executive director Roger Gunther said in a quantity announcement on Wednesday.

In 2020, the total volume of goods including container import and export and bulk cargo will decrease by 4% year on year. The port attributed this to reduced demand for steel pipes in the energy sector. As grain and bulk prices rose, so did steel and car prices.

The port said in September that it saw "the first shift to growth" after the coronavirus triggered export shock began in March.

"We are optimistic that container traffic is rebounding and will continue to rebound for the rest of this year and 2021," Guenther said in October

Port officials are also optimistic that this week will begin to widen the Galveston Bay waterway by 170 to 700 feet and deepen the upstream part of the waterway to 45 feet. In order to accommodate the growing number of container ships, it is necessary to widen the channel, they said.
