Punta Colonet Part of Mexico's Plan To Be "North America's Logistic Platform"
As the global economy recovers, Mexico is positioning itself as the "logistic platform of North America", according to Mexico's Secretary of Communications and Transportation Juan Molinar Horcasitas. To accomplish this, he said yesterday, Mexico is making large investments in port infrastructure, highway and railroads. He said three Pacific Ocean ports -- Punta Colonet, Lázaro Cárdenas and Manzanillo -- will receive major investments. The plan is to replace the port complex of Los Angeles-Long Beach, which cannot be expanded further, as the primary and preferred ports of entry for Asian freight moving into the U.S. and other North American destinations.
