The Port of Beaumont, Texas, has recorded what Port Director Chris Fisher calls a “banner year.” For the first time in the port’s 103-year history, more than 6.5 million tons of cargo passed through its eight terminals and operating revenues exceeded $24 million, shattering previously held tonnage and revenue records.

Starting in Fall 2019, the port will be ramping up infrastructure, resiliency and security improvement projects that will help sustain the level of growth experienced over the last several years.
