U.S. port services and equipment companies are invited to register for the U.S. Department of Commerce’s U.S. Commercial Service Mexico Site Visit to the Port of Veracruz on October 10, 2018. The Port of Veracruz’s $5 billion (USD) Expansion Project will more than double the port’s infrastructure between 2015 and 2030. Phase II of the project, now underway, features $3 billion (USD) investment in new terminal concessions and breakwater construction. Best prospects include equipment for new container, fluid and grain terminals; cargo handling and movement systems; IT and lighting systems; engineering, design and construction, particularly for terminals, breakwater and foundation; oil and gas handling; and environmentally friendly products and services. Participants will meet with port officials and terminal operators and tour the port during this one-day site visit to the port from Mexico City.
