August 09, 2019
On August 8, 2019, the main line on the Caltzontzin and Acambaro Districts became blocked due to civil protests occurring on or near the Kansas City Southern de Mexico’s (KCSM) track impeding our ability to continue without risk to the protestors. This mainline interruption impacted service to and from both the Port of Lazaro Cardenas and Toluca resulting in a service interruption.
The mainline cleared of protestors today, August 9th, 2019 and while we remain cautiously optimistic that the mainline will remain clear, in matters of civil protests, risk remains as they are not in our control. We will be monitoring the situation closely and will communicate should the status change.
Please do not hesitate to contact our KCSR Customer Solutions or KCSM Customer Solutions team with any questions you may have.
As always, we thank you for your understanding and patience.
