Research and Markets: Brazil Freight Transport Report Q3 2011 - Air Freight Tonnes to Grow 6% in 2011 and Rail Freight Tonnes to Grow by 9% in 2011

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/60c1e4/brazil_freight_tra) has announced the addition of the "Brazil Freight Transport Report Q3 2011" report to their offering.

BMI expects strong growth and continued investment in the Brazilian freight transport sector in Q211. Growth will continue on the back of exports to Asia, particularly China, and rising domestic consumer spending, which should see increased demand for imported goods. The pace of growth of Brazilian trade has been rapid and it has outpaced the country's freight transport sector. With increases in traffic expected across the board in the run up to Brazil's hosting of both the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games, BMI expect to see more investment in infrastructure, both public and private, as the sector seeks to deal with growing traffic and to capitalise on increasing trade opportunities.

Key Industry Data

  • Air freight tonnes to grow 6% in 2011. Over the medium term, to 2015, BMI predicts growth average annual of 7%.
  • Air freight tonnes/km are set to grow 5% in 2011. To 2015 BMI predict average annual growth of 7%.
  • Total tonnage throughput at the port of Santos to grow 12% in 2011. To 2015 BMI predict average annual growth of 11%.
  • Rail freight tonnes to grow by 9% in 2011. To 2015 BMI predict average annual growth of 9%.

Key Industry Trends TAP Sees Bright Future For Brazilian Airfreight, But Bottleneck Fears Persist Portugal's TAP Cargo has announced that it expects an 18% rise in the amount of airfreight it carries in Brazil this year. This ties in with BMI's positive forecasts for the sector, with upside potential presented by the country's preparations to host the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. However, with 13 of the country's 20 largest airports currently operating above capacity BMI maintain their view that investment is needed now to ensure that the country does not run out of airport space well before it hosts the world's biggest sporting events.
