KCSM factors fuel supply zone into faster locomotive throughput at Mexican terminal



Earlier this month, Kansas City Southern de México S.A. de C.V. (KCSM) began operating a fuel supply zone in Lázaro Cárdenas, Mexico.

The railroad recently received authorization from Mexico’s secretary of environment and natural resources to develop and operate a fuel supply zone designed to store up to 104,000 gallons of diesel.

Supervisors from several KCSM departments worked together to convince government officials the project is viable and environmentally safe. The railroad agreed to implement spill prevention and contamination measures.

The zone will help KCSM managers optimize the time locomotives spend at the Lázaro Cárdenas terminal, according to a Kansas City Southern statement.
