Houston Port Experiencing Closures and Delays

Via FreightWaves:
Port Houston halted operations Tuesday, July 27 at its two main public container terminals due to a “major failure of the storage devices that support all applications used to operate both Barbours Cut and Bayport container terminals”, officials said.

Sunset customers who route shipments through Port Houston should expect residual delays. Contact your international account manager to mitigate any stoppages or alternate shipment routing.

Once both terminals resume operations, they plan to have daily extended gate hours, including weekends.
