Just 2 hours southeast of Genemco's HQ and warehouse in Hearn, Texas is the Port of Houston, Texas. It is one of the largest ports in the world. The port is a 50-mile-long complex of diversified public and private facilities located a few hours sailing time from the Gulf of Mexico. Located in the fourth-largest city in the United States, it is the busiest port in the U.S. in terms of foreign tonnage and the second-busiest in the U.S. in terms of overall tonnage, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The Port of Houston is a cooperative entity consisting of both the port authority, which operates the major terminals along the Houston Ship Channel, and more than 150 private companies situated along Buffalo Bayou and Galveston Bay according to the Port of Houston Authority.
The following is the export container trade volume by world region reported by Port Houston (2021).

EXPERIENCE & INITIATIVE
For over 30 years Genemco has served customers globally and has shipped to over 45 different countries. All of our inventory is in stock and owned outright which eliminates unnecessary time delays and dealing with a middleman. We are capable of having your equipment out for next-day delivery.
Shipping prices can fluctuate frequently. Currently, freight pricing is high compared to the industry standard. This proves to be another reason why purchasing equipment from Genemco is a sound investment. At Genemco, all of our equipment is quality preowned, which allows us to sell to you at 40 - 60% less than the price of new. Saving you money to lessen the increased cost of shipping.
HOW IT WORKS
Shipping quotes are given based on location. This is provided by your sales representative after your equipment quote is requested. We have a range of shipping options to match your time frame and budget.
Communication is a key element to ensure that the details of your shipment run with the highest level of efficiency. Our sales staff is able to communicate in both English and Spanish and is committed to providing a five-star customer experience to every one of our customers.
Freight Provider: Have your own freight shipping provider that you want to use? That works for us too! We leave the decision to you. Genemco does not require purchasers to use our freight provider. We can have your equipment scheduled and ready for pick up as early as the next business day.
MEXICO & SOUTH AMERICA SHIPPING
With nearly 50% of our products being sent to Central and South America, our shipping process to these areas has become easy and seamless. This means you can expect faster and more efficient shipping experiences than ever before.
UPFRONT & TRANSPARENT
Shipping and service delays: Delays have been an issue for many freight companies. Shipment dates are estimated in accordance with our (or your) carriers. If you live in an area experiencing an unexpected service delay (severe weather, natural disasters, unscheduled events, etc.) please note there may be additional shipping time to receive your order.
