The Central Bioceanic Railway Corridor (CFBC) –a passenger and freight line that will cross South America– is a project aimed at boosting trade between Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. The Bioceanic Consulting Consortium, made up of the Spanish engineering companies Ineco and Incosa, has carried out a feasibility and financial viability study for the railway to better define its route between the Peruvian Pacific coast and Bolivia.
In a country with one of the highest agricultural productions in the world, how can the most appropriate modes of transport for high-volume freight be promoted? How does the evolution of the economy influence transportation costs? To answer these and many other questions, since October 2018, Brazil has had a new instrument: the National Transport and Logistics Observatory, which was launched by the public entity EPL, with the collaboration of Ineco.
The new modality of Public Procurement of Innovation enables the identification and promotion of R&D+I projects that offer solutions when the current ones are not achieving the required result. Ineco collaborates with the administrations in this new form of bidding which encourages innovation.
