The Port of Brownsville is the nearest full-service port serving the industrial and manufacturing hub of Monterrey, Mexico. The Port of Brownsville is an emerging “port of call” for the movement of bulk petroleum, natural gas liquids and other specialized bulk liquid commodities being imported or exported between Mexico and various supply points. The complex is on 21 acres and has 25 tanks with a current storage capacity of 525,000 barrels, rail facilities for up to 50 railcars and truck rack capacity for up to six trucks. There is sufficient land to enable the construction of up to 550,000 barrels of future capacity.
The Port of Brownsville has a heavyweight (119,000 Gross Vehicle Weight) truck transportation corridor between the port and international crossing points. It also has access to Interstate 69 via Toll Road 550. Inland marine vessels access the port via the intercoastal waterway. Inland barges and deepwater marine vessels access the terminal via the Liquid Cargo Dock, a “Panamax” Class dock.
The terminal was engineered and constructed to efficiently handle a variety of bulk liquids including refined motor fuels, paraffin waxes, base oils, and #6 fuel oil. The facilities have been designed to meet customer-driven performance requirements, where we provide not only storage but a variety of ancillary services.
