Facilities: Inner Harbor Dry Bulk Terminal

The Port of Corpus Christi Authority operates two dry bulk dock facilities on the north side of Tule Lake Channel in the Inner Harbor. Rail service is provided by multiple railroads, with a conveniently located certified rail track scale available for accurate railcar weighing.

Bulk Dock 1

Coal, ore, minerals and other dry bulk commodities can be discharged directly from vessels to railcars or trucks at Bulk Dock 1, which can also be used to load vessels when special handling is required.

Vertical clearance from bottom of bucket to waterline at MHW is 60 feet (18.3 meters) for Panamax-class vessels.

The traveling unloading tower has a free digging rate of 600 short tons per hour using a 15-cubic-yard bucket to discharge products weighing 55 pounds per cubic foot. Actual productivity varies, depending upon product and type of operation.

Bulk Dock 2
