The Rio South Texas Economic Council has a story to tell!
America’s Third Coast. Strategically located within and straddling two countries, Rio South Texas offers companies important competitive advantages including proximity to customers, suppliers and a growing educated workforce. This location – now being called “America’s Third Coast” – creates enormous efficiencies and opportunities for significantly reducing labor, energy and logistics costs. Just by utilizing ports in Mexico, for example, companies can save 20-25% in transportation costs and an average of three days shipping time. Keith Patridge, President/CEO of the McAllen Economic Development Corporation discusses the logistical benefits Rio South Texas – America’s Third Coast - delivers.
