Texas ports look to continue gaining from multibillion-dollar investments

Tens of billions of dollars of investments along the Texas Gulf Coast on the part of private and public sectors are helping position ports of the Lone Star State to benefit for decades to come.

Much of the activity is related to oil, gas and petrochemical industries but extends to include other cargos as well, from containerized consumer goods to vehicles to wind energy components.

Infrastructure projects moving forward at Texas ports include those to bring deeper channels, extended wharves, new cranes and enhanced rail yards.
