We continue to expand in our infrastructure for the benefit of our current and future tenants.
Port Freeport came into being more than 100 years ago when the first jetty system was built in Freeport, Texas. Since that time, the Port has become one of the fastest growing ports on the Gulf Coast. In 2017, Port Freeport was named one of the Top 10 Fastest Growing Ports in the United States for Exports. With billions of dollars invested in infrastructure, Port Freeport continues to evolve and expand to provide accessibility, efficiency, and safety both to its tenants as well as for Brazoria County residents.
17.7 Million tons of cargo moved through Port Freeport last year.
Located just three miles from deep water, Port Freeport is one of the most accessible ports on the Gulf Coast. Our central Texas location offers efficient transportation via highway, railroad or intracoastal waterway, and our 400-foot-wide, 46-foot-deep MLLW channel ensures a fast, safe turnaround.
In addition to access, Port Freeport also possesses an abundance of available land. With acres available for development, you can be sure we have the room your company needs to grow. Of this amount, 1,400 acres are environmentally mitigated, and all of our parcels are accessible by water, highway and rail.
