If you’ve been following the Port of Galveston in the news, you know that we reached a record $43.5 million in gross operating revenues in 2018. That gave us net revenues of $8 million after expenses.

There’s no magic to how we did it. Since I became port director in early 2018, we’ve focused on maximizing assets to generate revenue and reducing expenses to boost the bottom line.

Rodger Rees is Port of Galveston port director and chief executive officer.
