BMI forecasts an expansion in container and gross tonnage handling across all Colombian ports in 2015,
cementing a return to growth following a 2013 downturn. That said, domestic container demand will be
more muted than we expected, as falling oil prices will weigh on economic growth. We have revised down
our real GDP forecast for 2015 from 4.9% to 3.9%, and our Cartagena container throughput forecasts
Headline Industry Data
