LA PORTE - APM Terminals is shutting down its Houston operations earlier than expected at 919 E. Barbours Cut Blvd., affecting 109 jobs.

The terminal was originally scheduled to be shut down on August 17, but the closure date was moved up to July 24, according to the Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act letter.

The closure will affect 23 nonunion jobs and 86 union jobs. Most of the employees are expected to transition to other positions in the industry.

APM decided to close the terminal to consolidate business in the port, Mike Shaffner, APM Terminals port director in Houston said.

The Houston terminal was the third-largest APM pier in North America, according to the company's website.

APM Terminals is an international port manager and network that operates 11 ports in the United States and 72 worldwide.
