Shipping Cars To or From Port of Texas City
Car shipping companies rely on major cargo shipping ports in the United States to offer full-service international automotive shipping services to their clients. For vehicles being shipped overseas through ocean freight, they need to pass through the designated export port. Same goes for imported vehicles. For convenience, the closest port to the exporter’s location or the importer’s location is usually opted for as it greatly reduces the inland distance to be covered. Clients on the south side of the US are spoilt for choice, thanks to the many ports there are. And among these ports there is the Port of Texas City. A-1 Auto Transport Inc., where convenient, offers shipping cars to or from Port of Texas City to clients in the states surrounding Texas.

The perks of Port of Texas City
The Port of Texas City dates back to 1893 and is located in Texas City, TX, at Galveston Bay. Old as it is, it is today as modern as 21st century Sea ports can get. It neighbors two major ports also homed by Texas - the Port of Galveston and the Port of Houston. Its proximity to the neighboring ports is advantageous in terms of shipping relations, coordination, and traffic volume. This is responsible for its 14th position in ranking of the highest trading port in the US and the 87th worldwide according to records from the American Association of Port Authorities.
A port ranking such highly handles a vast amount of imports and exports, including car shipments. This translates to state-of-the-art shipping equipment, resources, and service output of international standards.
