Intermarine, LLC, has officially opened its state of the art Operations Center at Industrial Terminal, the leading breakbulk terminal on the Houston Ship Channel. They say that this landmark building is the only office building of its kind on the Ship Channel and houses Intermarine's entire technical, operations, traffic and terminal teams.  

The Operations Center is located at 14035 Industrial Road in Houston, Texas, and is a five story, 13,311 square foot building just 200 feet from the Houston Ship Channel. The fourth floor houses a customer center with floor to ceiling windows and premium audio visual equipment from where customers will have sight lines to all of our main docks.

"The idea is to have our customers be able to monitor the loading or unloading of their cargo from a comfortable space. We also encourage them to visit the ship, but in the event of weather or timing, they can get an up close view from our building. When the weather is nice, people can also visit the fifth floor observation deck. This allows an unobstructed, 360 degree, view from the Beltway all the way to downtown Houston," Mark Johnson, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, said.

"This new Operations Center enables us to continue our plan of growth and expansion, but more importantly it gets all our operations, technical, port captain and traffic teams together in one location.  Bringing these groups closer to our client's cargo makes all of our processes more efficient. We are quicker to react, if needed, and able to give real time updates as to the activities at Industrial Terminal. The Center reinforces our commitment to providing our teams with the best resources to meet our customers' needs," added Al Stanley, President and CEO.

"The Operations Center is open to Houston business and industry groups for special events, as well.  We already have a number of industry and business events on the calendar and welcome the opportunity to showcase this unique space in East Houston," mentions Melinda Liles, Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications.
