Latin America must be very cautious in terms of the deepening of its ports, which should be consistent with the size of the ships that will require the growth of their markets, which is very limited. On the other hand they should worry about improving urgently their infrastructure of internal transport that currently generates important bottlenecks.

This analysis of Drewry comes to confirm the recently expressed by Container Management in the sense that “although the routes of Europe and Asia have seen double the average size of the ships since 2007 to 13,000-14,000 TEUs, the port productivity only has grown 50% during this time, with ships that remain on average 18 days at the port instead of 12”.
Each day fewer and larger ships arrive to ports, creating major logistical complications and increase the costs.
