Texas-based Port Corpus Christi and Colombia’s Palermo Port Society have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further strengthen international trade opportunities, and affirm once more their strategic partnership.
Representatives from Port Corpus Christi and Palermo Port Society signed a MoU documenting their strategic partnership in April of 2014 in Corpus Christi, Texas, USA.
Now, the alliance between the ports was re-signed in the City of Barranquilla, Colombia on Friday, July 11, 2014.
“Port Corpus Christi has long realized the importance of serving a global market. Our investment in ship channel infrastructure and multi-modal connectivity serves existing customers and attracts new and diversified cargo as well.
We have been establishing strategic partnerships with maritime entities around the world and are honored to enter into an MOU with Colombia’s Palermo Port Society.
The agreement allows for the exchange of experience based knowledge and facilitates the transit of commodities through both ports,” said Port Corpus Christi Commission Chair, Judy Hawley.
The MOU with the Palermo Port Society establishes an alliance of cooperation aimed at generating new business by promoting efficient logistical land and sea port routes between Colombia’s Palermo Port Society and The Port of the Lone Star State, Port Corpus Christi.
