Total, through its subsidiary Total Atlantic Trading Mexico, will have the largest capacity in this terminal, located on the shores of the State of Veracruz.
With important storage capacity and better access to the Mexican market, Total will directly provide its refined products, mainly diesel and gasoline, to customers.
"The large capacity committed by the Group, combined with the competitive advantages of the terminal, will allow Total and its network of service stations to develop a leading role in the fuel retail market in Mexico City and the Valley of Mexico," declared Isabelle Gaildraud, Senior Vice President for Americas at Total Marketing & Services.
Total has partnered with Gasored since October 2017 and has opened more than 100 service stations over the last year, in line with its initial planning. This network will reach 250 Total-branded service stations by the end of 2019, with the objective to reach more than 400 stations by the end of 2020.
The Tuxpan Terminal is set to start operations in the second semester of 2020.
