Port of Brownsville

As the only deepwater seaport located directly on the U.S.-Mexico border, the Port of Brownsville is strategically positioned to efficiently serve and connect industries across North America and beyond. This logistical advantage has catapulted the Port of Brownsville as the major gateway for steel into Mexico, moving more than 5 million tons of steel commodities in 2023. The movement of cargo across the border is made easy thanks to the port’s direct connectivity to USMCA interstate corridors, offering a fast route to non-congested international bridge crossings. The Port of Brownsville also claims conceptual ownership of Texas’ first overweight corridor, allowing trucks crossing the border in either direction to load to the legal weight limits of Mexico – 125,000 pounds – (45,000 pounds heavier than domestic limits). The port’s foreign trade zone remains a leader in exports, ranking second in the nation with exported goods valued at over $8.2 billion. The FTZ has consistently placed in the top three for exports out of 193 FTZs nationwide since 2012.
