Brazil Road Freight Market

Brazil Logistics Industry Overview and Size by Revenue and Fleets

Road Freight is growing mainly due to the growing agricultural exports to South American countries and increasing automotive sector.

Poor road infrastructure, low margins, increasing road accidents and theft are the major factors limiting growth in the market. The market is strictly regulated by RNTRC with electronic freight payments and toll vouchers paid by the companies to the truckers. More vehicles are registered under the company’s name in comparison to freelancers and cooperative ones.

Sau Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Amazonas, Brasilia are some of the hubs that have contributed to domestic road freight in the country. Trade agreements such as MERCOSUR and free trade agreements with other countries are contributing to International freight in the market.

MERCOSUR is a trade agreement amongst the South American nations that are contributing to the increasing trade with other nations such as Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Others.
