Port of Corpus Christi recognised with AAPA Award of Excellence

The American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) has recognised the Port of Corpus Christi’s Moving America’s Energy media campaign with its 2019 Award of Excellence.

The campaign highlighted the port’s ongoing infrastructure investment programme and the importance of the record-breaking exports of American energy to US trading partners around the world. The AAPA Excellence Award recognises the Port of Corpus Christi as an overall category top submission amongst competing ports of similar size.

“We appreciate this recognition by our peers and the AAPA as we continue to share our story of American energy independence,” said Sean Strawbridge, ceo for the Port of Corpus Christi.

“The Moving America’s Energy campaign has helped inform and educate the markets of this Nation’s strategic emergence as a global producer and exporter of energy. Indeed, Washington and the international stage have taken notice,” he added.

“Thus, we continue our investment in the Port of Corpus Christi as we become the largest US energy export gateway status and ultimately achieve resiliency in energy and balance of trade.”

Sponsored by AAPA’s Public Relations Committee, the annual Communications Awards Programme has recognised excellence in port communications since 1966. The competition showcases the most effective products, programmes and services that public port authorities produce to meet their shared mission and their public relations, advocacy, advertising, branding and marketing goals.

Port Corpus Christ, in the western Gulf of Mexico, is a leader in US Crude Oil export ports and the 3rd largest port in the United States in total revenue tonnage.
