Brazil - a market undergoing unprecedented growth
Brazil is South America's leading economic power and by far the region’s largest and most populous country. With vast natural resources and a large labour pool at its disposal, Brazil continues to pursue an aggressive growth strategy which includes the development of its interior.
As with the rest of South America, Brazil's transport infrastructure has not kept up with the growth the country has experienced in the past few years. The government has introduced plans for improvements and private companies and logistics providers have invested in Brazil's ifrastructure. Still, the World Economic Forum recently described Brazil's infrastructure as “appalling”.
Many international logistics providers have invested heavily in Brazil, betting on its long term growth potential. However, not all are being successful due to the very competitive nature of its logistics industry.
