The engine that drives this export growth is Logistics. One of the most important components of this logistics engine is Brazil's freight sector.

Some European companies have already begun to move in by acquiring, and consolidating several existing companies. Other US companies have left the market, only to allow their local executives to create consolidated packages of several different companies, covering strategic territories.
