Schaefer Group offers a wide range of stevedoring options, both asset backed and network based, which we proudly offer to our esteemed clients. Our origins along the South Texas and Northern Mexico border have given us a great deal of experience in the international stevedoring industry. Schaefer Stevedoring offers terminal handling and warehousing services from our South Texas base for both Brownsville and Corpus Christi. And our network is further expanded with Schaefer & Compañía in Veracruz which also operates in Tampico. Additionally, our proud investment in IPA Steel Terminal Altamira, has made us one of the most significant steel shippers along the Gulf. And lastly, our partnership in Audaxia Logística based in Monterrey, Mexico more profoundly expands our reach into Mexico via the Pacific ports of Ensenada, Guaymas, Topolobampo, Mazatlan, Manzanillo, and Lazaro Cardenas. The combination of our asset back companies, with our specialized third party network operations, makes Schaefer Group one of the most formidable bulk cargo movers in Mexico today.
