The Commercial Port installations, known as "Recinto Fiscal Autorizado" (Authorized Fiscal Precinct), with one marginal berth with 9 different berthing positions, being one of them, specially designed to berth and operate barges for railcars. There are various private terminals for petrochemical products, molasses, sulfur, cement, grain, etc.

    The port infrastructure in this area such as berths, patios, warehouses are owned and operated by the government through its agencies, except for some private terminals that operate under private contracts. All vessels and cargoes are subject to Port, Dockage, Wharfage and Storage Dues, with some exceptions to the private terminals.

Also these companies are exempt of the Mexican government Dockage, Wharfage and Storage Dues since their installations are considered private, however, all vessels that operate in these terminals are subject to Port Dues.
