Members with the Port of Corpus Christi say the biggest portion of the product is the liquid product, 85% of what is coming in and out of the port is petroleum and crude oil.

Over in China, the Trump administration is slapping China with billions of dollars in tariffs with the trade. Could this tax affect our port?

Members of the port are not seeing this take place because of the fact that the main imports and exports are in a liquid product.

Leaders share they have seen an increase in price with steel and it is possible that we could see steel pipe products coming to the Port of Corpus Christi.

However, here in the short term, members with the port share now there is not a major impact on the tariffs.
