Parcel Port has been operating and serving the La Porte community since 1989, almost 32 years. This mailing and shipping business has grown with the city. Since Parcel Port has been open, the company has seen four previous owners. Dave Sherrick (1989-1990), Jude Hermsen (1990-2000), and Jerry Wallace (2000-2021) have all been a part of Parcel Port since the beginning. Now as the fourth owner, Jami Arnold is adopting the business with the intention of expanding services, while maintaining the success that Parcel Port has had for over three decades.
“I am so excited about the opportunity to own and operate Parcel Port. Parcel Port has provided an essential service (shipping parcels) to the La Porte community for over 30 years. While I never would have predicted I would own my own business, I am excited and committed to providing great service with a smile. I love meeting and getting to know our customers. As well, I have added a few new services such as notarizing documents and shredding. My goal is to provide our customers with a positive experience each time they walk through the door.”
