With the rise in exports, logistical operations have been increasingly required

Increase in exports: traders count on efficient logistics to meet demand

The increase in exports generates great expectations for traders throughout Brazil. However, to meet this demand, they are counting on the logistics sector’s efficiency to export products.

According to a survey conducted by the consulting firm LCA, the forecast increase for 2021 is 46% compared to last year, which will generate a surplus of about US$ 73 billion.

The Brazilian market has already been showing a favorable movement since the advance of the American population vaccination. Another scenario that has led to this forecast is the increase in exports of products to China, one of Brazil’s main trading partners.

For the Central Bank, the expectation is that the export surplus will reach US$ 64 billion. Even so, it exceeds the record reached in 2017, when the country reached the figure of US$ 56 billion.
