Jacintoport’s Preparation for the Coronavirus Threat

Jacintoport is an Essential Service Provider and Remains Open

Updated March 24, 2020

Jacintoport International wishes to advise its valued customers regarding the novel coronavirus COVID-19 and the status of our operations. The health and safety of our employees and the expedited movement of your valued cargo is our top priority.

 It is important to note that although Harris County has outlined that all businesses not identified by the U.S. Government CISA guidelines to shut operations, Jacintoport, Seaboard Marine, and the movement of cargo are deemed essential. We are working closely with the Port of Houston and other Harris County departments to ensure compliance. Our national leaders and municipal officials widely recognize the importance of international trade and supply chains. Further, government and customs officials are available for clearance of cargo. Jacintoport will report any change in status for vessels, terminals, trucking, rail, or facilities through our official channels of communication.

 We continue to follow the guidance from international, federal, and local officials, including the WHO, CDC, the U.S. Coast Guard, and Customs and Border Protection. Most of our domestic and overseas office-based employees are now either working from home or at alternate locations. However, our employees are answering calls and responding to inquiries.

Extensive restrictions are in place for ports and vessels both in the U.S. and throughout the international reach of our organization, including limitations on physical contact between vessel crews and our shore-based terminal teams. Preventative measures are in place throughout our network.

 We appreciate and value your support.
