e Horizon Auto Logistics Veracruz Main Terminal is located 15km or 9 miles outside the port of Veracruz. The terminal is accessed directly by road but is also located next to FerroMex/KCSM rail tracks leading to the port of Veracruz. This greatly alleviates the issue of congestion and quality concerns.
We began operations at our terminal in 2017 by offering storage and vehicle processing services to the automotive industry. Since then, we have developed a complete portfolio of services within the port of Veracruz and at our external yard Puente Villa Rica in Mataloma, which also includes inland transportation and distribution management.
Our operational model is flexible, and we adapt to meet and exceed our customer´s expectations. The goal is providing seamless operations and logistics with improved throughput.
The Horizon Auto Logistics Terminal being located 15km away from the port of Veracruz in a low salinity environment, avoiding sea spray and the northern winds, provides a safe place for storage and distribution of cars. We provide shuttle services by truck from the port to the external yard and vice versa, with a capacity of about 400 units per shift.
Having a VDC and a VPC at Veracruz allows us to offer a great location for direct distribution to the metropolitan area, which is less than 250 miles/ 400 km away. We are also connected to two main highways and the national rail network providing access to automotive production facilities and yards that are in Bajio, Metropolitan and Northern parts of the country.
