Andrew Lorimer, CEO of Datamar, was amongst those interviewed by Valor Econômico for its special feature on the ‘Infrastructure and Logistics Sector’ released today. The 100-page booklet provides a complete overview of Brazil’s infrastructure and logistics, with interviews with leading transportation and distribution specialists in the country and forecasts for the future.
In the publication, Andrew talked about the container market, which, despite the crisis, has grown three times faster than GDP – 2.9% from January to July. According to the director of Datamar, the solid bulk market is impacted by specific events, such as the Brumadinho disaster, which affected iron ore exports. “This is a factor that may have caused the 3.04% drop in the total movement in foreign trade,” he told the publication.
Andrew’s interview was based on his market experience and data from Datamar’s flagship product, DataLiner, which provides data and insights that enable the deepening of all imports and exports by sea on the East Coast of South America and Chile.
