INTERNATIONAL TRADE

The thriving City of Calexico is located on the Southern-most rim of California. Its neighboring city, Mexicali, is the state capital of Baja California, Mexico. Tens of millions of pedestrians and vehicles pass into the United States annually via Calexico’s two Ports of Entry. The Port of Calexico West is a shortcut to the heart of both cities – a favorite destination for tourists and locals alike and a shortcut to shopping and entertainment. The recently opened Port of Calexico East provides excellent commercial access to the manufacturing centers south of the border. It connects major U.S. trade routes and interstate highways to industrial parks and an abundant, skilled labor force. Calexico is surrounded by prime land, perfectly suited for industrial use. Calexico’s ample and inexpensive real estate present incredible opportunities for international trade, considered by some to be among the best locations for growing a business within the United States. In addition to extensive roadway and railway access, Calexico offers an international airport with the availability of private international charter flight services. Calexico has something to offer every business looking to broaden their horizons.
