KANSAS CITY — Railroad operator Kansas City Southern and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics plan to team up to open a distribution center in Texas for Nissan vehicles.
The companies announced the move Thursday. The new center is to open at the 800-acre CenterPoint Intermodal Center, which is 35 miles southwest of Houston.
Once open, the center is to allow WWL to ship Nissan vehicles faster to Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma on Kansas City Southern's rail line between Victoria and Rosenberg, Texas.
It also is expected to link the center to Nissan's manufacturing plant in Aguascalientes, Mexico, and the Pacific port of Lazaro Cardenas.
