Servicing the Texas Ports in Houston, La Porte, Pasadena, Freeport and Beaumont since 2004.
TICO began operating in Houston in 2004 by furnishing a single customer with a pool of the newest and cleanest tractors for Barbours Cut Terminal followed by the opening of the Bayport Terminal in Pasadena. The volume of work, our customer base, and the number of terminals has increased steadily every year. Bayport and Barbours Cut Terminals are the major container terminals with a current total of 23 ship-to-shore cranes. When 2 ship to shore cranes were placed in Freeport and container vessels began calling in 2015, TICO placed a pool of tractors and trailers there to support our customer’s needs. An extensive inventory of specialized equipment needed to work various ro/ro and military vessels is domiciled in several terminals along the Houston Ship Channel (or Turning Basin) and in Beaumont, TX.
Our Texas facility has been instrumental in developing numerous specialized attachments, adaptors, and specific use trailers to assist our customers in achieving safer and more efficient production. A steady increase of off port dedicated leases has created a need to grow our pool of DOT tractors in the Houston area.
