    Tampico is a city and port in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. It is located in the southeastern part of the state, directly north across the border from Veracruz. Tampico is the fifth largest city in Tamaulipas with a population of 297,284. The Metropolitan area of Tampico has 859,419 inhabitants. Economic development during the 1920s made the city a pioneer in the aviation and soda industries.

Containerized cargo, however, is mainly handled by the neighboring ocean port of Altamira.
