   When renewing or issuing a new
lease the Port Authority is primarily
concerned with three issues:         the
amount of tonnage a firm handles or
expects to handle; the services a com-
pany can provide to the port area; and
the amount of revenue the Port
Authority will receive as a result of the
lease agreement.
    "We have to utilize our acreage to
the best of our ability for the move-
ment of volume tonnage. Leasing pro-
perty to companies or individuals who
generate very little cargo through the
port does nothing to improve our
overall tonnage picture," said Greg
 Seaman, Manager of Real Estate.
    "The industrial parks are important
because the shipping industry as a
 whole benefits from the services of
 some of the companies which locate
 in them. But the Port of Houston
 Authority’s primary goal concerning
 the industrial parks is to promoteaddi-
 tional cargo tonnage," said Seaman.
