Always in the land section there is also the Mexican Railway System that is made up of 26 thousand 727 km of railways. Currently, they are concessioned to private consortiums for their operation 17 thousand 799 km in 3 main trunks and 3 short lines, as well as the Railway Terminal of the Valley of Mexico, to a mixed capital company, where the federal government participates with 25% of the shares. For its part, the 222 km of the line of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec are administered by the federal government.

In the maritime section, the main port facilities that carry out commercial activities in the 5 continents and contribute more than 95% of the containerized cargo tonnage are the ports of Manzanillo and Lázaro Cárdenas in the   Pacific, and those of Veracruz and Altamira in the Gulf. with them Mexico carries out its international exchange.

  • 12 assigned to the Pacific Airport Group (GAP).
  • 13 to grupo Aeroportuario Centro Norte (OMA) and
  • 9 to Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (ASUR).
  • 24 are administered by ASA and,
  • 27 in charge of the Secretariats of National Defense and Navy, as well as various state and municipal governments.

This year alone, the government will invest

four billion dollars

in 25 port projects that will give an installed capacity of 500 thousand tons. This is not the work of chance or political movements but are part of the Investment Program in Transport and Communications Infrastructure that are being developed since 2013 where the

The vision

 Seeking   the reduction of costs and times in the transfer of people and goods through the construction and modernization of 17 thousand km of highways, roads and rural roads that connect the 32 states and the strategic locations of a new National System of Logistics Platforms.

With the passage of time, Mexico will become even stronger, so it is important to be prepared to be able to conduct business with companies from different parts of the world and as has already been mentioned on multiple occasions, it is not necessary to invest in infrastructure but one option is to outsource with experts.
