Description

This
FAL Bulletin
demonstrates the evolution
of maritime networks and port development at
primary and secondary ports in Latin America
and the Caribbean. An analysis of time series
data on container movements between 1997 and
2013 reveals patterns of cargo flows and trans-
shipment location choices. The institutional context
of devolution processes and new investments
in the region provide additional insight into the
performance of selected ports.
