A Strong Partner for a Fragmented Market
Latin America and the Caribbean is a very fragmented market full of challenges and opportunities alike. Most of the countries comprising this sub-region are predominantly dedicated to basic extractive industries such as agricultural and mining production and import activities dedicated to cater to the tourism sector.
Due to the particular conditions of the transport market in the área and the relatively underdeveloped infrastructure, combined with the size of the many small local markets, the impact of logistics and transportation costs on the final price of goods is between three to four times higher than the average at OECD countries or the United States.
”Furthermore, delays in customs clearance, local transportation costs and the relatively little use of 3PL and 4PL solutions add to the challenges facing the logistics industry in the región.
Recently, large manufacturing firms have started to place increasing interest in some of the Caribben nations for production, mainly focused on the US garments market. The influence of the Panama Canal expansión, the presence of a larger market in Colombia, and the expected recovery of toursim activities in the Caribbean islands are set to fuel a rebound after the current Covid-19 global crisis.
Mar Bridge Line comes into this scenario with the intention to be the specialist that helps both local and international companies grow their business and enhance their value generation in this market by offering top-notch ocean and logistics services.
Now more than ever is the time for strong partnerships with true specialists with a clear focus on a market as complex and promising as Latin America and the Caribbean.
