​​​​​BAYTOWN – After its short-lived cruise business, the Bayport Cruise Terminal is rolling out its new venture next month.

Auto Warehousing Co. will use the facility to start importing vehicles in December, the Houston Chronicle reports. Auto Warehousing inked a lease for the facility earlier this year.

The terminal is expected to import 36,000 vehicles over the next three years.

The business is expected to create about 25 jobs initially and about 150 eventually.

The switch to importing cars was part of the Port of Houston Authority's repurposing of the $108 million Bayport terminal. 

Both Norwegian and Princess cruises chose not to renew their contracts at the Bayport terminal earlier this year, leaving it without any cruises.
