Transport & Logistics

Peru Transport & Logistics 2012
With more than 2400 km of Pacific coastline, Peru is well placed to take advantage of increasing levels of trade in the Asia-Pacific region. As China has overtaken the US as the country’s biggest trading partner, Peru has turned its attention to improving transport and logistics to facilitate the flow of Asia-bound exports. For example, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications in late 2011 announced a $20.5bn project to upgrade transportation infrastructure. The plan calls for upgrades to roads and highways – including Peru’s portion of the Interoceanic Highway, which runs from Peru’s Pacific coast to Brazil’s Atlantic coast – as well as the expansion of the rail network and upgrades to Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport and the construction of a new airport in Cuzco. This section includes interviews with Carlos Paredes, Minister of Transport and Communication; and Jorge Vilches, CEO, LAN.
