MTC acquires Mexican multimodal terminal

MTC acquires Mexican multimodal terminal

Occupying more than 130 acres and offering multi-modal terminal services, on-site customs and bonded warehousing facilities to ocean carriers, railroads, intermodal and other logistics service providers, Puerta Mexico is located on the Toluca–Atlacomulco highway with direct access to rail line “N” of Kansas City Southern de México (KCSM).

According to MTC management, Puerta México will become the terminal of first choice for service to and from the central valley, the ports of Lázaro Cárdenas and Manzanillo, and Laredo at the US border. With a capacity in excess of 150,000 containers per year, it essentially doubles the intermodal capacity available to the greater Mexican central valley region and alleviates a major bottleneck in the central valley supply chain.

“The transaction is indicative of MTC Holdings’ strong interest in México and confidence in the country’s economy and business climate. We are committed to making investments that substantially improve the global supply chain, lead to real improvements in the competitiveness of Mexican businesses and provide greater choices and lower prices to consumers,” said Doug Tilden, MTC’s president and CEO.
