Port San Antonio, the single-largest industrial complex in South Texas, is home to a dynamic array of businesses that support the immediate and long-term needs of companies tapping into the tremendous growth of the Eagle Ford Shale.
The Port is a five minute drive from the city’s downtown and major highways IH 10, 35 and 37. We offer the only site within city limits served directly by the Union Pacific and BNSF Railways trains. Our customers also have access to an industrial airport at Kelly Field (SKF), boasting the region’s longest runway and able to handle any size aircraft. And with our partners at Port Corpus Christi, even the Gulf is within easy reach from our front door.
Port customers operate over one million square feet of public warehouse space, accessible by truck, aircraft and rail for the movement and storage of supplies and equipment.
We also have existing properties for lease to meet your logistics, office and other needs.
Our customers’ expertise in aircraft maintenance also translates into innovative fixes and minimal downtime to an array of advanced equipment used for energy exploration and extraction. Our customers also repair and refurbish railcars used to transport oil, gas and related supplies and equipment.
Port customers include some of the region’s premier short-term staffing and permanent placement firms. What’s more, we have a strong collaboration with Alamo Colleges, including the Alamo Academies and the Workforce Center of Excellence—helping prepare workers in manufacturing and heavy equipment careers.
Shale energy opportunities don’t end at the border, and our customers and partners help businesses access international markets through the region’s only public foreign-trade zone (FTZ #80-10), on-site U.S. Customs and our collaboration with the ports of Laredo and Corpus Christi. The Port is located just two hours from Laredo—the largest land crossing between the U.S. and Mexico accessible by both rail and truck.
Whether it’s on our 1,900 acres or your land, the Port’s in-house team of construction and real estate management experts is behind some of the largest and most innovative commercial projects in the region, including warehouses, offices and transloading operations. And our partner, Watco Companies, is one of the country’s premier developers and operators rail infrastructure.
Travelers arriving by private aircraft will find an uncongested airfield and full support through our fixed-base operator. Highways leading to Eagle Ford projects are within five minutes from the Port’s front door. Corporate housing is also available on a short- and long-term basis at the Port’s fully-furnished three-bedroom units.
