Company descriptionThe Port of Coatzacoalcos has a privileged geographic location in the region of the Istmo de Tehuantepec; it is located at the tip of the shortest land route between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, at a distance of only 302 km. It is located on the left bank of the river with the same name, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico.The Port of Coatzacoalcos contains four major terminals. Pemex (Petroleos Mexicanos) operates the Pajaritos Terminal; API de Coatzacoalcos, SA de CV, the port authority, operates the commercial terminal and wharves; Troy Industries SA de CV operates their own terminal; and Agronitrogenados SA de CV operates the Agrochemical Terminal. Many of the berths have different length restrictions for vessels anchoring during the day and night. The oil and its derivatives as well as various chemicals handled at the Maritime Terminal Pajaritos should be noted as a very important component of the movements within the Port.Although this terminal is located outside of the port premises, the port of Coatzacoalcos receives a significant income from the harbor dues of the shipments that berth at this terminal. It is worth mentioning that within the port premises, there are also installations in charge of PEMEX for the handling of the liquid sulfur.
Products and servicesThe main products that make up the Port's cargo traffic are sulfur, molasses and chemical products (exports), agricultural bulk, fertilizers and chemical products (imports) and agricultural and mineral bulk (Cabotage input).
