Expanding Rail Infrastructure for the Future

Apr 26, 2016


Port Corpus Christi manages an astonishing number of rail cars, and is set to expand capacity with the opening of Nueces River Rail Yard Phase II by First Quarter 2017. 

Phase I of the Nueces River Rail Yard came online in early 2015 and included a 9,920 foot long unit train siding. The opening of Phase II will add an additional eight 8,000 foot long unit train sidings. 

Along with deep water shipping channels and easy highway access, an efficient rail system is an integral component for multi-modal strategic logistics at Port Corpus Christi.
