Latinports Meets a Cycle
Proliferation of terminals and over-dimensioning in a static market, as well as poor internal transport infrastructure, are the main causes of the crisis in the sector.
Faced with the growing need to attend my independent professional commitments and in order to avoid eventual conflicts of interest in the future, in the past TOC Americas held in Cancún I presented my resignation as executive director of the association to the the year 2017 will be of transition, period during which I will continue collaborating ad-honorem to the Associationpresident of the executive committee, Arturo López from Mexico (who finished his period), first of January 2017. In agreement with him and with the president Richard Klien from Brazil (both founding-benefactor members), we consider that after seven fruitful years dedicated to Latin American port logistics situation but in the face of the crisis in the sector, Latinports had completed a cycle. For such reason the year 2017 will be of transition, period during which I will continue collaborating ad-honorem to the Association.
Despite the difficulties experienced by the port sector today, this is the opportunity to wish our ports and terminals, as well as our countless fans, a better year 2017.
