Exploring São Paulo's potential
Intermodal São Paulo, which was scheduled to be held from today, 17 to 19 March, has been cancelled at short notice and been put off to probably the second half of July.
According to the latest Agility Emerging Market Logistics Index, Brazil is the country with the fourth-largest growth potential in the world after India, China and Vietnam.

In terms of airfreight volumes, USA–Brazil connections grew by 2.3% to 47,529 t in 2019, thus reaching fourteenth place of all links between emerging and established markets. In exports, Brazil–Europe came twelfth, posting a 7.8% increase to 97,303 t.
