Avant Energy is planning to build a logistics system that will supply refined products to Mexico’s Bajio region via rail from the Port of Altamira in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, the company said Wednesday.
The network will be known as Supera and it will be built along with strategic partners Savage Services and Kansas City Southern (KCS), Avant said in a statement.
Avant was not immediately available for comment. The company already has all the port facilities and regulatory permits required for construction.
The system will be anchored by a 1.2-million-barrel marine import terminal at the port of Altamira, which will be able to unload Panamax vessels.
