Both the current and previous administrations have shown a commitment to updating and expanding the capacity of the transport system. Nevertheless the country is facing increasing overcapacity at its ports, rural roads remain unpaved and developers are struggling to find suitable locations for new warehouses. Certain segments face specific challenges, notably in terms of security concerns for road freight. With rising domestic consumption and a growing manufacturing sector, demand for Mexico’s transport network appears set to rise further over the medium and long term. Therefore, addressing these challenges and charting a clear policy path, one that combines public investment with policies designed to increased private sector involvement in transport, will be necessary for the ongoing growth of the sector. This chapter contains interviews with Aby Lijtszain Chernizky, Executive President, Grupo Traxión; and José Zozaya, CEO, Kansas City Southern México.
