Infrastructure, dinamism and access to markets to power logistic activities
Transportation and logistics companies are dependent on transport infrastructure to improve operational effectiveness and drive customer satisfaction. Significant improvements have taken place in the North Pacific, Central Pacific and Caribbean gateways in this regard.
The Port of Caldera in the Central Pacific has had a $55 million investment during the last 8 years. It has increased unload container capacity from 17 to 44 containers per hour and overall productivity has increased 2.5x. It is also quickly interconnected by route 27, through which San Jose’s International airport can be reached in a 45 minute drive.
The Port of Limon will receive a $1 billion investment starting in 2015 and over the following years to boost and compliment the region’s logistics flows leveraging proximity to the Panama Canal.
With an investment of $35 million, Daniel Oduber’s International airport was opened in 2012 and now operates over 120 weekly flights to main cities in the US and Canada including Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, New York, Toronto, and Boston in addition to receiving over 50 private jets every month. Its cargo facility, to become operational in the short term, will further boost the country’s aerial exports.Learn more about the country and its location
Skilled talent for efficiency and client satisfaction
In developing economies, transportation and logistics as a sector is growing rapidly but its success depends decisively on the quality and qualifications of its employees. In Costa Rica, 48% of export goods were shipped by sea and 33% by air in 2014. In the next 3 years, exports via air are projected to grow 7.2% and the start of Liberia’s Airport cargo operations will add to that growth trend. This is why, Costa Rican talent has the track record and experience to execute diverse functions related to logistics and supply chain.
