Jacintoport is an Essential Service Provider. We Are Open
Updated April 27, 2020
Jacintoport International wishes to advise its valued customers regarding COVID-19 and the status of our operations. The health and safety of our employees and the expedited handling of your valued cargo is our top priority.
It is important to note, 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 open. We are working closely with the Port of Houston and other Harris County departments to ensure compliance. Our national leaders, along with state and municipal officials, widely recognize the importance of international trade and supply chains. Further, government and CBP officials are available for clearance of cargo.
We continue to follow the guidance from federal, state, and local officials, including the CDC, the U.S. Coast Guard, and Customs and Border Protection. Most of our office-based employees are now either working from home or at alternate locations. However, they are energetically and promptly answering calls and responding to your inquiries.
Our terminal is open and operating. Cargo is being received while vessels are being loaded and discharged. Extensive restrictions are in place, including limitations on physical contact between vessel crews and our shore-based terminal teams. Preventative measures have been imposed throughout our facility.
As we continue to serve your cargo needs, we appreciate and value your support.
