It is important to high­light that nearly 80 per­cent of the re­gio­nal tra­de ope­ra­tions flows th­rough maritime ways. That is the reason why Cen­tral Ame­ri­ca is witnessing im­pro­ve­ments in the maritime logistics sec­tor. The coun­tries in the area have made pu­blic and pri­va­te in­vest­ments in a bid to at­tract mo­re ship­ping com­pa­nies, mo­re tra­de ope­ra­tions and mo­re eco­no­mic growth. Ho­we­ver, the­re are se­ve­ral challenges on the way: for port aut­ho­ri­ties, cus­toms, ship­ping com­pa­nies, lo­gis­tic ope­ra­tors, ex­por­ters and im­por­ters. Ac­cor­ding to spe­cia­lists, the key is to pro­vi­de com­pe­ti­ti­ve fa­res, in­fras­truc­tu­re, com­mu­ni­ca­tion among all sec­tors and con­trols.
