There are signs of growth within the freight industry in Chile and , in particular, in the air and rail sectors, as investment in infrastructure makes way for an increase in demand for the transport of raw materials and agricultural produce. Th r ough the slowdown in China, Chile's biggest export country has taken its toll, the economy is beginning to diversify in order to reduce its reliance on the Asian country and GDP looks set to rise as economic recovery takes shape.

Despite the falling demand for copper, Chile's leading export, the country's GDP is set to grow over the short to medium term as investment in economic recovery takes shape. This will place the country in a strong position in the region to take advantage of trade opportunities, with the US and Asia remaining key trade partners. Economic recovery in these countries will contribute towards the success of Chile's freight sector and help to determine the rate of its growth.

The metals industry is still Chile's major exporter and will remain so in the medium term. Investment in a number of new projects in the pipeline will boost production; however, with metal prices remaining weak in the short term, the sector will not see a marked improvement in growth until 2018. Overall, exports will see solid growth thanks to the weak peso, with imports also looking healthy going towards 2020.

Road freight will continue to dominate the freight mix thanks to the country's geography and the nature of the goods that it trades. There will be increased investment in the road infrastructure as part of the government's investment plan for economic recovery, with links to the country's bordering countries a particular priority. Growth will be kept in check by economic factors such as a slowdown in demand from China and a sluggish economy at home and, despite lower costs from oil price falls, the road industry will see the lowest rate of growth of all three freight sectors in the medium term.
