Victoria County Navigation District officials yesterday announced plans for a 2,000-acre regional logistics center at the Port of Victoria, Texas.
Located two hours from Houston, Austin and San Antonio, the Texas Logistics Center (TXLC) is available for development, multimodal capabilities and business opportunities. The park’s location will offer tenants access to rail, water and highway transportation.
TNW Corp., which currently provides rail operations for the port, will assist with the development of the TXLC and the port’s multiphase rail expansion project. The project's first phase calls for the addition of over 42,000 feet of track, including the build-out of three 10,000-foot drop and pull tracks. Later phases include storage tracks, transloading and connections to new tenants, TNW officials said in a press release.
BNSF Railway Co. and Union Pacific Railroad will serve the TXLC.
TXLC's connection to the 35-mile Victoria Barge Canal leading to the Gulf of Mexico is located on the M69 Marine highway, connecting 11 deep-water and 13 shallow-water ports along the Texas coast, officials said. In addition to water access, TXLC has over 3 miles of road infrastructure located within 8 miles of major Texas highways.
"The Texas Logistics Center will significantly strengthen the port's ability to provide top-tier logistics solutions in economic development through the expansion of our services and physical footprint across North America," said Sean Stibich, the port’s executive director.
