Terminals & Operations
Schaefer & Compañía, our first venture in Mexico, initially operated as a warehousing option to the Port of Veracruz. Today, it is also our Mexican logistics company, focusing primarily on steel cargo imported into the country.
Our role in Tampico began as a commercial accord with Grupo Alijadores, which at the time, was the only licensed terminal operator by the Mexican government. We’ve since had many good years working at the multi-berth port, with an over 100 year history as a point of cargo import and export for northern and central Mexico.
We are part of a group that has formed IPA Steel Terminal Altamira. Steel Terminal is a private facility engineered for general cargo shipments. IPA Steel Terminal Altamira is a multi-berth facility with a 38.5 foot draft. We offer both inside and outside storage, with new infrastructure designed for optimal general cargo handling and storage. We also offer customs brokerage and trucking services, creating a complete delivery program.
Schaefer Terminals focuses on inland shipping and cargo border crossings while offering both inside and outside storage along the Rio Grande.
