Infrastructure in Peru began to develop rapidly thanks to the economic growth that the country had at the beginning of the 90's. By giving many of the ports and airports under concession to private companies, these concession companies greatly improved the infrastructure and the quality of services. Bringing them to international standards regarding services as well as new technology and machinery. In the part of air infrastructure or airport network of Peru, it is made up of 97 aerodromes, 11 of which are international and 86 are national or private. The airport concessionaires have the following distribution: Lima Airport Partner 1, Aeropuertos Del Peru 12, Aeropuertos Andinos 5, Corpac 29, other domestic and / or private operators 50.
It is important to highlight that Peru manages to connect the Pacific and Atlantic oceans through a series of land and river routes. Currently, it has 62 ports, 45 of which are maritime, 11 river and 6 in lake, and the most important are the Salaverry Multipurpose Port Terminal, Ilo Moquegua Port Terminal, General San Martín Port Terminal - Paracas, Pisco, Yurimaguas Port Terminal – Nueva Reforma, Multipurpose Terminal Muelle Norte - Callao, Lima.
The existing National Road Network consists of a total of 27,109.6 km (21,434.0 km of Paved Roads and 5,675.5 km of Unpaved Roads). The Departmental Highway Networks have a total of 27,505.6 km of Roads (They are 3,623.1 km Paved and 23,882.5 km Not Paved). The Neighbourhood Roads Networks have a total of 113,857.9 km (They are 1,858.9 km Paved and 111,999 km Not Paved).
The Railway Network in Peru consists of a total of 1,939.7 km. Of which we have 188.7 km of the Public Network, 1,512.4 km of the Public Concession Network, and the Private Network 238.6 km. The 33.1 km of the Lima Metro is not considered, since it is not interconnected to any network, it only fulfills the role of mass transport and depends on the Autonomous Electric Train Authority.
The Ministry of Transportation and Communications has prepared the Transportation Logistics Services Development Plan. This Plan is conceived as a tool for analysis, evaluation, planning and promotion that will enable to face the main challenges posed to the Peruvian transportation, logistics and industry sectors in order to enhance their future competitiveness.
The Transport Logistics Services Development Plan aims to:
Conceptual outline of development. The diagnosis of the Peruvian logistics system has shown that although the needs of domestic logistics chains are important, the Peruvian system is currently positioned -and effectively serving- global logistics chains. In particular, the logistics and port supply of El Callao stands out. The size of the hinterland, the country's significant efforts to modernize port infrastructure, and the way demand and supply have reacted have made Callao a second-ranking port hub in the Pacific.In summary, Peru's current functional model presented in the diagnostic phase is as follows:
Based on the above analysis and the national freight transportation model developed, 22 logistics corridors and a main node, Lima-Callao, have been identified, along which most of Peru's freight traffic moves. The table below shows the codification and description of each of the logistics corridors identified.

The description of the conceptual model of logistics development, the best alternative being a mixed development model (international-domestic). For this purpose, it is necessary to describe in more detail the selected model. The mixed model of development of the national logistics system, as its name suggests, is a model that combines the development of all components of the logistics system - infrastructure, services and processes - in support of the international market for these services and the domestic market.
The international market segment demands very efficient infrastructure and services in the border nodes -maritime, air and land-, with very attractive costs and quality for the user of the international physical distribution system. In general, the logistics services offered here are complementary to the foreign trade (border) activity, and the logistics processes are those usually included under the denomination "trade and transport facilitation" (see Table N° 2 below).
The domestic market segment, on the other hand, demands infrastructure to support domestic distribution of goods and urban or last mile logistics. Services are associated either with support for the preparation of products for final consumption or for their export.
Components to be developed in a Mixed Logistics Model
Domestic market segment
The main objective of defining these scopes has an impact on the prioritization of investments, the definition of the system's management and promotion model, the institutional model to be adopted and the roles of the public and private sectors. The adoption of the mixed model implies that the State is involved in the active promotion of all the components of the system and not only, as has been the case to date in Peru, in the components of the system aimed at serving the last stages or links in the foreign trade logistics chains.
The standards to be met by the system are necessarily linked to the relative hierarchy of the system's components. These standards are related not only to capacity and quality, but also to the comprehensiveness of the solution.
This means, for example, that investment in high-capacity port infrastructure alone is not enough to ensure a high standard; such a standard would be ensured with a smooth and efficient integrated system: fluid access, segregation of local flows from international flows, adoption of state-of-the-art information technologies to ensure port movement. A port that does not have the relevance of El Callao would not need to meet such high standards, not only because the demand is lower, but also because the investments involved are also lower.
HISTORICAL MAP OF CRITICAL POINTS OF THE NATIONAL ROAD NETWORK
According to the map of critical points that the Ministry of Transport and Communications has identified through Provias, the sections of the national road networks, with high probabilities of being affected by natural phenomena (landslides, mudslides and platform erosion) are concentrated in the central zone from the country.
CENTER ZONE - National Road Network and Aerodromes
The figure shows the national road network (Center), highlighting the potential sections to be considered as part of a potential air bridge, as well as the aerodromes that could serve as the axis of said air bridges.
SOUTH ZONE - National Road Network and Aerodromes
The figure shows the national road network (South), highlighting the potential sections to be considered as part of a potential air bridge, as well as the aerodromes that could serve as the axis of said air bridges.
