With three Class I railroads servicing Port Corpus Christi, shippers have the ability to send cargo via rail virtually from or to anywhere in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Rail on the port's cargo docks (including the strongest dock of U.S. Gulf ports), means direct to/from vessel access at a deep water port.
Rail is a vital component of Port Corpus Christi, and rail operations have increased over 100 percent in the last five years. Due to this substantial increase a rail master plan identified a new rail interchange yard near the west end of the Inner Harbor.
