Freight Drives a Revival of Railways in Latin America



The largest rail projects in the region are aimed at integrating South American nations.

In most Latin American countries, road transport generally plays a dominant role in the movement of freight. Rail networks, usually considered a more sustainable and efficient method of transport, have not been sufficient in size and scope.

This report highlights the expanding rail networks across the region.
