If 2020 taught us anything, it’s the importance of focusing on the things we can control and being adaptable. The Galveston Wharves board and staff did just that. As a result, our business has weathered the pandemic well.

Estimated total cargo was 4.2 million tons, 6 percent over 2019. We broke another record for lay ship revenue, earning more than $5 million, roughly 10 percent over 2019. This contributed to our positive cash flow for 2020 despite the suspension of our cruise business in March.

Rodger Rees is port director and chief executive officer for the Galveston Wharves.
