Julio Pérez Alván, president of ADEX, indicated during the VI Logistic Forum that a great challenge is the modernisation and optimisation of logistics processes, which require public and also private work by companies and authorities related to international trade.

In a letter addressed to Peru’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, César Landa Arroyo, the Association of Exporters (ADEX) suggested asking the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the United Nations to address the international maritime transport issues that are making Peruvian foreign trade less competitive and hindering the reactivation of the economy. 

The lack of spaces on ships and spiralling costs of containers are hampering Peru’s key fresh produce exporting industry. It is not only exporters facing delays but also importers of vital products. With the objective of finding some alternative solutions to the logistics problems, ADEX held the ‘VI Logistics Forum’ on June 16 in a hybrid format (virtual and face -to -face). 

The event addressed issues such as: a global logistics look, regional logistics panorama, prioritisation of transport infrastructure, special economic zones (ZEE), National Logistics Plan 2030, Port Development Projects in Peru, among others.
