Businessman Eduardo Segura emphasized that Panama’s advantage in business regarding logistics lies in its capabilities as a multimodal center, where railway, ports, air and sea freight used simultaneously are the country’s greatest strength, which must be further advanced.
Everything about rail transportation exports in Panama.
Top exporters - Quantities, amounts and prices.
Improved logistics in the transport of goods is the goal of a government project that will be supported by the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute.
The increased activity which comes from being a global logistics hub, expected to increase even more when the expanded canal is operating, requires an all encompassing regulatory framework.
So far 95% of the logistical movement in Panama is by sea, making it necessary to integrate land and aerial means in order to consolidate the country as a global hub.
On March 25 international and local experts will discuss the logistical impact on the region of the expansion of the canal at the Panama Logistic Summit event.
