Our Approach

Dedicated to remain competitive in the global market, the shipping industry is recognizably one of the most vulnerable to untimely costs and risk of accidents. That act of mooring a vessel, while a small expense in the total marine transportation process, can involve the owner/charterer in personal injury litigation, one of the highest liability risks in the nation. Texas Mooring is currently the only mooring services provider that is ISO certified in Texas.

Our team of dispatchers are equipped with latest in marine monitoring software. With 24/7 service, local relationships with the Houston Port Authority, Pilots and Port Agencies, we can provide the critical vessel information tailored to you, when you need it.
