Analysis and publications

The Freight Transport and Logistics Regional Observatory analyzes topics relevant to the logistics agenda of Latin America and the Caribbean. These analyses have a practical focus, oriented toward public policy decision-makers in the sector.

The Regional Observatory maintains an up-to-date database that compiles documents on a variety of topics of interest to the logistics agenda. These are classified according to a taxonomy, defined by the IDB, which systematizes the multiple components and topics that this agenda encompasses and facilitates database searches. The taxonomy is also a framework used by the observatory network for its logistics performance analyses.

In addition to the analyses and investigations carried out by the Regional Observatory and members of the network, the database contains documents from other sources, including public and multilateral institutions as well as those from the private and academic sectors.
