‘Port of first resort’ – Houston transport company moves HQ to La Porte
For years it has been little more than a fenced-in, well-lit no-man’s land, but soon it will be the home of a far-reaching company with a forward-thinking leader.
In November, Gulf Intermodal Services, a container-transport company, purchased a 10-acre tract of land in La Porte for $1.9 million, with plans to spend an additional $1 million in converting the site into the company’s new headquarters.
It also will provide ample space for a container yard to house the bread and butter of GIS’s business.
