Kansas City Southern and Midstream Texas Operating LLC (MTO) today announced a long-term commercial agreement to provide truck-to-rail transloading services for petroleum and petrochemical shipments moving from Corpus Christi, Texas, into Mexico.
Operations are expected to begin in the fourth quarter.
On property leased from KCS, MTO will construct a transload facility — including siding tracks and facilities for loading and staging of 200 rail cars per month — under the project's initial phase.
The facility will be "strategically close to supply locations and to the border for expedient access to end markets," said Ginger Adamiak, KCS vice president of energy and chemical products, in a press release.
"This service expansion offers our customers proven transportation to an attractive market. We are delighted to link with MTO's Ingleside terminal to offer seamless marine, truck and rail movements," added David Vattimo, MTO's chief executive officer.
