Port-rail connectivity is a strategic element of port development, both in economic and competitive terms and to reduce negative externalities on people and the environment.
Even though railways represent a tremendous opportunity to improve port competitiveness, their effectiveness varies according to the particular characteristics of each industry.
Geographical and economic aspects, industry structure, type of foreign trade and institutional structure are some of the factors influencing the successful implementation of Port-rail connectivity.
