The largest port in the nation is in your backyard, and it's getting bigger. This special publication has been unlocked for all readers thanks to the sponsorship of Promote Houston Ship Channel.
The Houston Ship Channel was the first federal project to have a local match component to it. In 1909, Houston Mayor Horace Baldwin Rice and U.S. Congressman Tom Ball presented the “Houston Plan” to the U.S. House of Representatives Rivers and Harbors Committee. Congress approved it, and that has been a model used for other federal navigation projects since that time.
Maybe the name isn’t creative, but does that matter if you can obtain a truck for anywhere near half of its retail value? The Houston-Galveston Area Council will host a “Drayage Truck Event” from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1.
