Port Corpus Christi has combined forces with Colombia’s Palermo Port Society in an effort to strengthen international trade opportunities.
In April 2014, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by both parties as a way of documenting their strategic partnership.
Through Port Corpus Christi’s continuing effort to diversify its global cargo base, staff negotiated an MOU with the Palermo Port Society.
Port Corpus Christi commission chair, Judy Hawley said: “The agreement allows for the exchange of experience-based knowledge and facilitates the transit of commodities through both ports.”
Business will be generated by the signing of the MOU through the promotion of efficient logistical land and sea port routes between Colombia’s Palermo Port Society and Corpus Christi – affectionately known as ‘The Port of the Lone Star State’.
