Bad weather shuts Mexico petchems port Altamira, product imports port Tuxpan

Sat Mar 04 11:12:00 CET 2017 arnekiel

03/03/2017 The Mexican petrochemicals port of Altamira, and the principal port for the nation’s growing imports of oil products, Tuxpan, were closed to shipping early Thursday by high winds and heavy seas on Mexico’s northern Gulf Coast, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation reported. All other Mexican oil and petrochemicals ports were operating normally, the ministry added. Two ships are due to arrive from Texas in Tuxpan Friday, one has a load of LPG from Houston, the other is carrying unspecified oil products from Beaumont, according to the port’s website. An official at the harbor master’s office in Tuxpan told S&P Global Platts that no information could be given on how many ships are due to arrive or leave the port. Source: Platts

Mexican port growth outpaces US, Canada

Thu Feb 16 07:41:56 CET 2017 arnekiel

Cargo volumes through Mexican ports increased by 5.5 percent in 2016, outpacing its two North American Free Trade Agreement counterparts, despite the weakening peso, gas price hikes ,and transportation-link blockades. Yet the year ahead may be even more difficult for Mexico, given the uncertainty over its trade with the United States, and will likely be far tougher than for its counterparts. Under normal circumstances, solid 2016 figures would mean Mexico’s logistics industry is entering 2017 with a promising hand, especially given the federal government’s vigorous commitment to spend $5 billion on upgrading the port system. Port improvements set to come online in the next 12 months include a new terminal built by APM Terminals that is set to open on Feb. 27 at the Port of Lazaro Cardenas; a new rail tunnel at Manzanillo to open by the end of the year; and a continuing construction project at the nation’s largest port on the Gulf of Mexico, Veracruz, that is planned to increase its 900,000-TEU capacity five-fold by 2030. Mexican officials recently called Veracruz the nation’s biggest infrastructure investment in 100 years. http://www.joc.com/port-news/international-ports/port-l%C3%A1zaro-c%C3%A1rdenas/mexican-port-growth-outpaces-us-canada_20170215.html

MSC revises Canada Gulf service

Sat Jun 18 08:37:49 CEST 2016 arnekiel

MSC has announced details of its revised Canada Gulf Bridge service. The changes, which come into effect from Sunday 19th June, will now feature a Southbound transit from Houston, to the two Mexico ports of Altamira and Veracruz. The Northbound service will then leave Veracruz, destined for Philadelphia and Montreal. Providing direct routes to and from Mexico allows MSC to acknowledge the significant change taking place in the manufacturing sector in this part of the globe. It is estimated that by 2017, as many as one in four American cars will have been built in Mexico.
