The 25th Latin American Logistics Meeting organized by APLA took place in Buenos Aires on June 6th and 7th, 2023. Delegates and industry representatives from various petrochemicals and logistics companies gathered in the vibrant Argentinian capital to engage in discussions and thorough analyses of the petrochemicals sector’s recent advancements, as well as their consequential effects in the realm of logistics. 

Topics that took center stage included regional GDP growth as well as regional opportunities, the rise of automatization and artificial intelligence, the new paradigms that have arisen in the workforce segment after Covid-19, as well as climate change: As the realm of logistics embraces the transition towards green energy and aligns with the goals outlined in the Paris Agreements, it is crucial to acknowledge that the implementation of more environmentally friendly fleets may come at a higher cost, impacting shipping fares.
