The USD Group is expanding its network of refined products terminals with an additional two facilities in Central Chihuahua, Mexico.
The Ciudad Cuauhtémoc terminal development is expected online by mid-2018 and will include manifest rail and truck transloading capabilities, as well as land for expansion.
Additionally, the company is formalising plans for a second refined products distribution terminal in the Central Chihuahua area, which will feature unit train, tank storage and truck loading capabilities.
The planned terminals are expected to ‘meaningfully improve the distribution of refined products across the state of Chihuahua, which includes approximately two million residents and one of Mexico’s most concentrated and productive agricultural and mining hubs.
Steve Magneess, vice president, business development, says: ‘Along with the Querétaro terminal, our expansions into the Central Chihuahua area demonstrates our commitment to improving the delivery of critical products across the region.
‘We believe our network of scalable terminals will enable our customers to more efficiently meet the rapidly growing demand for refined products in Mexico.’
Both terminals will be serviced by Ferromex railroad, a subsidiary of Grupo Mexico Transportes, with access to all North American Class 1 railroads.
