Strategically located over 200-acre acres with direct rail access, highway connectivity, and to deep water, the Port’s bulk terminal is capable of handling all logistics for dry bulk cargoes throughout the South West and Mexico.

The Bulk Terminal sits on the north side of the Inner Channel. The Port is supplying a new Liebherr LHM 550 rail-mounted crane with radius of 54 meters, 144-ton max capacity, and maximum unloading rate of 1500 ton per hour—for loading and unloading dry bulk commodities directly to vessel, rail, truck or ground.

Bulk Dock 1 currently maintains a gantry crane with capability of unloading of dry bulk cargo vessels at a rate of 600 tons per hour direct to rail, truck or ground. With dockside draft of 34-ft, Bulk Dock 1 can handle several cargo types from coal, ores, aggregates, minerals and other dry bulk commodities.

Coal, pet coke, met coal, sulfur or other dry bulk cargoes can be easily loaded directly to vessels, trucks or storage pads at our Bulk Dock 2. Featuring a radial ship loader with a 45-ft deep draft, and capable of loading a maximum rate of 1500 tph, Bulk Dock 2 is an optimal solution for moving product quickly to overseas markets.

A loop railroad track currently surrounds the entire Bulk Terminal facility, capable of handling a unit train for transloading opportunities for commodities such as aggregate, direct-reduced iron (DRI), hot-briquetted iron (HBI), and other dry bulk cargo throughout North America.
