US-Mexico rail link for Houston

Chamber of Shipping > Blog > News > US > US-Mexico rail link for Houston

The Kansas City Southern of Mexico (KCSM) line is planning to open an inland port, increasing rail options between the US and Mexico. The 540-acre Southwest International Gateway Park is located on the main KCSM northbound line about 60 miles southwest of Houston. The park will give shippers a more direct and efficient route into the Houston market, and potentially lower costs. The park also seeks to help exporters in the booming Gulf Coast resin sector, creating an alternative departure point through which area resin manufacturers can send shipments to Mexico by rail, and to Asia through Mexican ports.
