Logistics crisis:

Peruvian public and private sectors decide on actions to minimize impact

In order to mitigate the damage caused by the global logistics crisis due to the limited availability of containers and the increase in freight prices, the Association of Exporters (ADEX), the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur), the Association Marítima del Perú (Asmarpe) and the National Port Authority (APN) met to propose a series of actions in favor of the sector’s competitiveness.

The president of the union, Erik Fischer Llanos, highlighted the importance of work private public. He stated that, in the face of the international crisis, in which Peru has little management capacity to solve it, a scheme is necessary where risks and other expenses that are charged to users can be reduced or avoided.

During the meeting, other problems were also discussed, such as the lack of appropriate or effective practices in cargo handling, since ships can arrive on a certain day, but operators send trucks days in advance, causing queues, therefore that this process should be improved in order to make it more efficient.
