China is building a 220-km rail line through Columbia — three times the length of the Panama Canal, and connecting the ports of the Atlantic and the Pacific in order to boost its exports to the Americas. It says its success depends “on the cost of transporting per tonne, the cost of investment, and they all work out”. In this regard, thus, our container operators should neither have concerns of margins being hit, nor passing of some of the proposed rate rise to consumers.
