Port Houston terminals reopen following hardware failure


Two container terminals at Port Houston have reopened after a major hardware failure halted operations at the port.

Executive Director Roger Guenther said the port experienced a failure of the storage devices supporting all applications at Barbours Cut and Bayport Container Terminals on 27 July prior to the 07:00am local gate opening time.

In a letter to Port Houston customers and stakeholders, Guenther said staff responded immediately and moved applications onto a redundant set of storage devices, which then failed again at 12:00pm.

In an update on 29 July, the port says Bayport and Barbours Cut Container Terminals were to open at 15:00pm local time.

“Access to N4 and Lynx is open to all users. API and EDI are running,” the port wrote. “Gate Hours today will run 3pm – 11pm with the ingate closing at 10pm.”
