POV Dock No. 1 is a 350-foot transit dock. A new lighting system allows for 24-hour cargo operations.

POV Dock No. 2 is an 800-foot string pier available for docking sites and barge repair. Major products transferred are liquid and dry bulk and general and project cargos. The Port of Victoria's ission is to provide waterway transportation capabilities to create economic opportunity in the region. The port has recently formed an industrial park with multimodal access. The park is located within a Foreign Trade Zone and a Texas Enterprise Zone. The port has the ability to "build to suit" and tailor a package specific to customer facility and transportation needs. A major cost savings was realized by including the basin expansion with the completion of the widening and deepening of the Canal. In addition to almost doubling the size of the harbor, a 400 foot x 150 foot barge slip was added. These enhancements will offer our customers greater safety and efficiency. The Port of Victoria is a center for the chemical, construction and steel fabrication and agribusiness industries offering access to all transportation modes. The Texas Water Code allows for the creation of navigation districts that are enabled with the powers to enhance the navigable waterways within their jurisdiction. The Victoria County Navigation District encompasses the entire county of Victoria and its waterways. The Port of Victoria was created to formally organize the management of its ports and waterways.
