Victoria, TEXAS – The Victoria County Navigation District announces plans for the Texas Logistics Center at the Port of Victoria (TXLC). Strategically positioned in a Foreign Trade Zone and Texas Enterprise Zone, the regional logistics hub is situated two hours from Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. With over 2,000 acres available for development and access to rail, water, and highway transport, TXLC provides strategic business opportunities in Texas.
Phase 1 will see the addition of over 42,000 feet of track, including the build-out of three 10,000-foot drop and pull tracks. Later phases include storage tracks, transloading, connections to new tenants, and upon completion, TXLC will be served by Union Pacific and BNSF railroads. “The Texas Logistics Center will significantly strengthen the Port's ability to provide top-tier logistics solutions in economic development through the expansion of our services and physical footprint across North America.” said Executive Director of the POV, Sean Stibich. TXLC’s connection to the 35-mile Victoria Barge Canal
leading to the Gulf of Mexico is located on the M69 Marine highway, connecting 11 deep-water and 13 shallow-water ports along the Texas coast. In addition to ample water access, TXLC has over 3 miles of road infrastructure located within 8 miles of major Texas highways.
TNW Corporation, a privately held operator of short line railroads and logistics centers in Texas, currently provides industry rail operations for the POV and will continue assisting with the development of the TXLC / POV’s multi-phase rail expansion project. “Our strategic alliance with the POV continues to thrive. The addition of the Texas Logistics Center offers a strategic logistics advantage to businesses seeking to relocate operations in Texas, and TNW is proud to be part of the Port’s growth.” said Wade Hoffmann, TNW’s Vice President of Marketing and Sales.
The Texas Logistics Center at the Port of Victoria makes for an industry trifecta with its scalable site selection, multimodal capabilities, and community support. For more information about the TXLC or to schedule a tour of the facility, go here.
