Honduras - 2 Logistics Infrastructure



The Central American region implements regional integration strategies with the aim of promoting an offer of logistics services that position it as a world-class logistics HUB by 2030. Along with this objective, Honduras has proposed a strategic plan to become the Logistics Center of the Americas.

In this sense, it has developed air, maritime and reconstruction projects for different roads, which have positioned the country among the first three nations with the highest investment in road infrastructure. They are also currently working on the construction of nine logistics corridors that have been improving connectivity throughout the country, and with the rest of Central America.

According to the World Bank's Logistics Development Index (2018), Honduras went from ranking 112 with a score of 2.46 in 2016 to ranking 93 with a score of 2.6, improving 19 positions.


In addition, the World Economic Forum (WEF) positions Honduras among the first three Central American countries with the highest investment in road infrastructure and second in the construction of maritime projects.

Maritime infrastructure is fundamental to Honduras' competitiveness as it is a gateway to trade and drives tourism development.

On the Atlantic coast are Puerto Cortés, Puerto Castilla, La Ceiba, Roatan and Tela; In the Pacific Ocean we find the ports of Amapala and Henecán/San Lorenzo.

Puerto Cortés is the most important port in the country, with a natural deep-water port and significant certifications, it is a leader in port services in Central America. Ninety percent of Honduras' international maritime transit transits through Puerto Cortés; the rest is managed in Puerto de Castilla and San Lorenzo.

Recently, Honduras developed a strategy to improve and convert its main ports into international and modern ports with the ability to provide efficient and competitive services, within global accreditation programs. The Port of Trujillo is in a similar concession process and offers excellent investment opportunities in logistics services.

The air infrastructure is a cornerstone for the economic and social development of Honduras, which allows the mobilization of people, services and goods.

Currently, Honduras has 4 international airports, located at strategic points: Palmerola (center), Ramón Villeda Morales in San Pedro Sula (north), Golosón in La Ceiba (Atlantic Coast) and Juan Manuel Gálvez in Roatan (Caribbean).

In road infrastructure, Honduras has 9 logistics corridors that connect and facilitate the transport of goods throughout the national territory.

It has the Logistics Corridor, the Central Corridor, the Dry Canal, the Agricultural Corridor, the Tourist Corridor, the Eastern Highway, the Lenca Corridor and the Western Corridor.        

The largest is the Logistics Corridor, has a length of 391 km and links the ports of Amapala and Henecán in the Pacific with Puerto Cortés in the Atlantic.  This Corridor is fundamental for Central America in the transport of goods, mainly destined for the East Coast of the United States.
