New seaport is too far away
I read your editorial regarding a new seaport in Mexico to receive shipments. I'm curious why the Mexican government would be interested in building a new seaport to receive shipments and then rail them to the U.S. when capacity exists elsewhere. I assume most of those shipments would come from China or elsewhere in that region. The port of Vancouver has a container port at Roberts Bank which has expansion capacity as well as an established rail link to the U.S. via BNSF and is much closer to China than the west coast of Mexico, reducing the cost of shipments to the U.S. Vancouver already receives car shipments from the Orient which are destined for the U.S. market. There would therefore be no need to build a new port and a new rail link via Yuma or anywhere else. By my calculations, Vancouver is 1,000 miles closer to the Orient than Mexico or any other port on the West Coast, except Prince Rupert, B.C.
