Abstract

Este trabajo presenta la estimación de costos y tiempos de comerciar en Colombia para cada eslabón de la cadena logística. Los resultados se derivan de la encuesta aplicada por el Banco de la República a agentes especializados en la logística de comercio exterior afiliados a la Federación Colombiana de Agentes Logísticos en Comercio Internacional (FITAC). La colaboración de FITAC y sus miembros fue fundamental para generar esta información, dado su conocimiento sobre las actividades de importación y exportación y su papel estratégico en integrar los eslabones de la cadena logística. Para las importaciones los costos se calculan para 13 categorías de servicios logísticos desde el puerto de embarque en el país de procedencia hasta la bodega del importador, y en el caso de las exportaciones desde la bodega del productor hasta el puerto colombiano donde se embarca la mercancía. Adicionalmente, se presentan cifras sobre el tiempo que toma importar y exportar una mercancía.
