LONDON, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- has added a new market research report:

Brazil Freight Transport Report Q1 2014

Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates

We forecast that growth in Brazil's freight transport volumes will outpace the Latin American giant's real
GDP growth in 2014 and over our medium-term forecast period (2014-2018), across all modes. Continued
growth in the BRIC nation's mining and agribusiness sectors will ensure that the road, rail and ports sectors
will continue to experience healthy expansion, while air freight will benefit from the growing demands of
the country's expanding middle class. Further, the sector will benefit from Brazil's role as a major exporter
of a host of commodities.
Nevertheless there remain serious challenges to growth, and hence risks to our outlook. These stem from
both the physical side - whether infrastructure development in the country will be sufficient to support our
projected growth rates - and the human - the ports sector is already undergoing a wave of industrial unrest
as workers contest the government's proposed ports privatisation moves.
