KCS Boosts Intermodal Service to Puerta Mexico

Kansas City Southern has added intermodal train service to Puerta México, a new multimodal facility in Toluca, México. Operated by Ports America, Puerta México is located on KCS' International Intermodal Corridor and offers shippers an  alternative to and from the busy México City market.

In addition to train service, Puerta México offers multimodal terminal services and on-site Customs and bonded warehousing facilities to ocean carriers, intermodal and other logistics service providers.  With its direct access to Kansas City Southern de México, S.A. de C.V.'s (KCSM) "N" line, Puerta México is positioned to become the terminal of choice for service to and from the central valley, the Port of Lázaro Cárdenas and the border crossing at Nuevo Laredo/Laredo.

With an estimated capacity exceeding 150,000 containers and two million plus tons of cargo per year on more than 130 developed acres, it essentially doubles the intermodal capacity available to the greater Mexican central valley region and alleviates congestion in the central valley supply chain. In addition to storage, cross-dock and transloading, the terminal will be a vehicle distribution center.
