The Marino Group’s Marine Repair Services – Container Maintenance Corporation (MRS-CMC) has opened a new depot facility at Port Houston.
The new facility will support global supply chain fluidity with an expansion of its storage, distribution, repair, and capacity services in the region.
Situated across from Port Houston Bayport Terminal and near Barbours Cut terminal, the new facility will supplement the company’s repair and maintenance services at Port Houston, providing customers with loaded container storage, empty container storage and repairs, chassis start/stop and repairs, grounded reefer pre-trips and genset rental program.
“The opening of this state-of-the-art facility — which is unlike any other depot in the country – demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing best-in-class solutions that address the demands of the marketplace as well as the needs of our customers,” said David M. Miller, Director, Southwest & Mid-South Operations at MRS-CMC.
“As Port Houston continues to experience record-breaking container volumes, we see a market-driven need to expand our footprint in the region and enhance our capabilities.”
Port Houston is the largest Gulf Coast container port, handling 70 per cent of Gulf Coast container traffic.
For over eight years, MRS-CMC has been operating out of two Port Houston terminals, offering Maintenance and Repair (M&R) services for chassis, containers, reefers and gensets.
The expanded roster of services through the new facility include: Pre-pull program service for warehouses and distribution centres, equipment storage capabilities and efficient grounded reefer and genset operations.
