China interested in biosea train to connect Brazil

What does the biocenic train consist of?

One of the key projects to improve connectivity and improve the efficiency of the Sankei Megaport is the implementation of the Biocyanic Train. The ambitious project seeks to establish a rail link linking the port terminal with Brazil, also crossing Peru and Bolivia.

By connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Bioceanic Railway will provide a direct and efficient way to transport goods, resulting in significantly reduced transit times and costs.

China's strong interest in the bioscene railway project stems from its experience in railway construction and its broader strategic objectives. The Asian giant recognizes the potential of this project to strengthen its economic ties with South America as a key partner in global trade and infrastructure development.

China's investment will not only contribute to railway construction, but also stimulate economic growth and development in the region. It is worth noting that China is the main driver of the new Peruvian port through the company responsible for the project, Casco Shipping Ports.

Currently, it takes approximately 35 days to export products from South America to Asia because it is done through “cabotage” to major ports such as Mexico or the United States. However, from Sankey, ships can make direct trips, which can significantly reduce the transit time to 10 to 12 days.

A few years ago, the executive branch noted that a railway project in the Peruvian region would cost about $7.5 billion, with financing likely to come from China, a major market for South American exports.
