Home - South Texas Alliance for Regional Trade

Welcome to START

South Texas Alliance for Regional Trade (START) is a cooperative effort among three Texas Ports formed to strengthen the region’s response to logistics and transportation needs, the driving forces of our diverse economy. The Alliance is anchored by Port San Antonio to the north, Port Corpus Christi on the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and Port Laredo located on the U.S. – Mexico border. Our Ports have long-standing business relationships, bolstering the efforts and resources of our region. START here, and you’ll see why South Texas is on to Something Big.
