Rail-served locations have proximity to Port of Brownsville and Mexico, solid infrastructure, direct access to Class 1 railroads and trained workers available

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OmniTRAX, Inc., a comprehensive logistics solutions provider and affiliate of The Broe Group, is working with the Greater Brownsville Economic Development Corporation (GBEDC) to bring the Rail-Ready Sites program to the Brownsville & Rio Grande International Railway (BRG). The OmniTRAX Rail-Ready Sites program connects companies looking to maximize supply chain performance with rail-served properties.

OmniTRAX and GBEDC are marketing three initial sites on the BRG totaling 50 acres. The BRG, which interchanges with Class 1 railroads Union Pacific, BNSF and Kansas City Southern Mexico, will focus on attracting advanced and heavy industries, including automotive assembly & parts manufacturing, aerospace component manufacturing, metals recycling, port-related industries and large scale manufacturing, plus energy, logistics and more.

“The attractiveness of Brownsville for both manufacturers and logistics starts with its comprehensive infrastructure network and continues with very pro-business state and local governments. Working with the Greater Brownsville Incentives Corporation, we’re confident we will attract fast-growing companies and bring new jobs and prosperity to the region,” said Federico Diaz Page, Director, Economic Development at OmniTRAX.

Mario Lozoya, Executive Director and CEO, Greater Brownsville Economic Development Corporation, said, “Brownsville offers companies a great location with access to Latin America via rail, highway and sea, and has a cost of doing business that is 20% lower than the rest of the country. Combine that with our young and skilled workforce, which includes participants in our award-winning “We Grow your Own” training program, and the OmniTRAX Rail-Ready Sites program is sure to be a great success for Brownsville.”
