MTC Holdings, a terminal-operating company based in San Francisco, has completed acquisition of an inland multimodal terminal facility and services company. The Puerta Mexico intermodal terminal is located in the State of Mexico in the industrial zone of Toluca, 40 miles west of Mexico City. It offers multimodal terminal services and onsite customs and bonded warehousing facilities to ocean carriers, railroads, intermodal and other logistics-service providers. The site boasts direct access to the rail line of Kansas City Southern de Mexico. Puerto Mexico aims to support services to and from the central valley, ports of Lazaro Cardenas and Manzanillo, and Laredo at the U.S. border. With estimated capacity of more than 150,000 containers a year on more than 130 developed acres, Puerta Mexico doubles the intermodal capacity available to the greater Mexican central valley region, while alleviating a major bottleneck in the region's supply chain, MTC Holdings said. Last July, the company became part of the AIG Global Investment Group, through its acquisition by AIG Highstar Capital.
