About Modern Logistics in Brazil Statement
Brazil's status as a regional economic powerhouse is well established, the country's size and geography make infrastructure development difficult and costly thus creating daunting logistical challenges for the movement of goods throughout the country. For years, Brazil's lack of adequate infrastructure has been a serious issue for commerce that significantly increases transportation costs and delays for both global and domestic businesses. Modern Logistics bridges Brazil's infrastructure gap by enabling companies to reach customers and locations they never could before by air in a timely and cost-effective manner. The company has also created a new and growing market for the shipping of perishable goods over long distances, previously a near impossibility, and another reason why Modern Logistics' full logistical platform makes it the one-stop-shop for logistic solutions in Brazil, currently a $US 250 billion industry.
As Modern CEO Gerald Lee states, "By reducing transportation time and intermediaries, you can cut the price in half, increasing consumption and better remunerating the producer. We need to demystify that air cargo is prohibitively expensive," he adds. "It doesn't have to be. Throughout the process, you help in the development of fairer and more efficient chains, retaining more income with producers."
The recent trend in e-commerce demand highlights the importance of having an efficient logistic sector for ensuring that consumers readily have access to the products they want and delivered in a timely fashion. In Brazil, logistics infrastructure plays a vital role given the country's size, geographical challenges, and its position as a leading global exporter of commodities. However, there continues to exist huge gaps in critical infrastructure that is requisite to expanding logistics throughout the country.
Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world and remains highly dependent upon road transportation, which is inefficient, often making merchandise vulnerable to theft. The country's existing highway network is insufficient as only 14 percent of Brazil's roads are paved.
