For example, there is the Tioga Marine Terminal which handles the fruit business of Chile, as well as containers, breakbulk cargo, and steel. There is also the Packer Marine Terminal which handles containers, frozen meat, fruit, and more.

That same year, the port ranked 24th in terms of cargo tonnage—handling over 35.1 million tons of cargo; the port of South Louisiana came in first having handled 229 million tons.
