Company Overview

We are an international stevedoring company providing shipping services within the maritime and port logistics industries of the United States and Mexico. Based out of the Port of Brownsville, Texas, Schaefer offers fully integrated steel and general cargo logistics services out of Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Laredo, Dallas, Altamira, Tampico, and Veracruz. We work with commodity producers, traders, shippers, brokers, and receivers, with a specialization in terminal handling operations including the loading and unloading of ships, barges, railcars, and trucks from both indoor and outdoor storage facilities. Our terminal operations have water and dock access, on-site rail spurs, truck loading areas, transfer yards, heavy lift capacities, and all of the necessary equipment to provide safe and efficient cargo handling and storage services.

Mexico has become for us, very familiar territory. Schaefer facilities and services in Mexico are an integral part of our company’s operation and ongoing development; making our presence there our greatest strength. We directly offer complete stevedoring and shipping services on the Gulf Coast, and work with commercial partners for cargo entering the Pacific Coast via Manzanillo and Lazaro Cardenas.

The Schaefer family has been handling steel and general cargo for Mexico for well over four decades, and in that time we have developed an extensive network of reputable collaborators to help secure an effective and efficient shipping experience.
