In this regard, it is important to mention that, as a result of the measures applied both in Peru and in various parts of the world to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, various sectors of the economy suffered a series of impacts that, to a greater or lesser extent, to a lesser extent, they also had effects on the demand for maritime transport infrastructure services.
Thus, although in the Peruvian case, during the State of National Emergency the port terminals of the country did not present restrictions for the development of their operations, the effects on the traffic levels in the ports occur indirectly depending on the degree of reactivation of both the national and foreign economy.
