The Calhoun Port Authority serves as a gateway to world markets for the Texas mid-coast region. The port plays a vital role in supporting Texas chemical manufacturing industries and in building a stable economic foundation for Calhoun County. It is served by the Matagorda Ship Channel and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Primary cargo loads handled at our port location include chemicals, petrochemicals, crude oil, agricultural fertilizer and much more. A key part of this mix also includes very high-value chemicals produced by area industries and sold for export to markets around the world. In addition, our facilities are well-suited to accommodate break bulk cargo, heavy equipment, dry bulk materials and just about any load that needs to travel safely and efficiently by ship or by barge.More About Us -->
