Mexico has great potential to develop intermodal transportation, a sector that from 1995 to 2019 grew 11.6% but subsequently growth was lower. For this reason, public policies are required to boost its growth, especially in view of the opportunities generated by the Treaty between Mexico, the United States and Canada (T-MEC).
Carlos Martner Peyrelongue, coordinator of Integrated Transport and Logistics of the Mexican Transport Institute (IMT), comments that they have detected that in the last 5 years the growth has not been as expected.
“It has been decreasing dynamism and from 2015 to 2019 the growth has been minimum of 0.7% annual average and ton-kilometers of 2.4%, which generates reasons to review what is happening and why it has not continued to have the momentum it had in the initial years,” he exposes.
Luis Hernandez, vice president of Intermodal Logistics FEC Railway and Grupo Mexico Transportes, comments that in the domestic corridors the movement of merchandise has always been positive, since from 2014 to 2020 the cargo doubled, from 22,000 containers that were moved in the Interpacifico to 42,000 containers.
