Ports America welcomed Pacer International to its Puerta México Intermodal Facility, located in the industrial zone of Toluca, 65 kilometers west of México City.
In May, Pacer initiated six-day-per-week direct rail service to and from the terminal in Toluca to handle shipments, including automotive and third-party domestic northbound and southbound traffic. This new service parallels Pacer’s existing PacerMex ramp points throughout its U.S. and Eastern Canada network and provides through non-stop, in-bond service.
“The Puerta Mexico terminal offers multi-modal terminal services and on-site customs and bonded warehousing facilities to ocean carriers, railroads, intermodal and other logistics service providers with its on-dock direct access to rail line “N” of Kansas City Southern de México (KCSM),” Stephen Edwards, Ports America president and CEO said. “Puerta México is quickly becoming the terminal of first choice for service to and from the central valley, the ports of Lázaro Cárdenas and Manzanillo, and Laredo at the U.S. border. It is helping to lower logistics costs, thereby lowering prices and bringing greater choices to consumers.”
