The Port of Orange is a deep-water port located in Eastern Texas known for long term lay berthing. The port frequently sees domestic cargo ships, barges, tugboats, and construction facilities that are used to manufacture tugs, barges, and drilling rigs. The port is big on supporting industrial facilities and allowing them to utilize port resources for the advancement of industry. The Port of Orange has warehouses for cargo storage, packaging facilities as well as transportation services such as railway and truck.
It is also home to a "transmodal marine yard" that is being funded for development by the United States Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration. This recently completed project will help the port handle products more efficiently by way of a loading and unloading facility for containers, a loading and staging yard and a three-lane roadway so that cargo can be moved.
