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 ranking 6th in chemicals, 15th in foreign waterborne tonnage, and 26th in containers. A 2019 Economic Impact Study by Texas A&M Transportation Institute revealed that, nationally, the Freeport Harbor Channel generates 279,780 jobs and has a total economic output of $149 billion. 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.
30 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 acreage available for development, you can be sure we have the room your company needs to grow. Port Freeport has over 500 acres of environmentally mitigated property that is ready for development and strategically located adjacent to the Port's main terminals. The Port has over 1,800 additional acres of property to support future growth and development. All of our parcels are accessible by water, highway and rail.
