TRENCAR (Trenes del Caribe, S.A.S.) is looking to become the first private railway company in Colombia to offer a secure and cost effective alternative of transporting cargo, connecting the industrial and commercial production sources with the seaports in the Caribbean Coast. In the long term we are looking to transport cargo in other local railways and future integration with our neighbor countries.
Colombia has great international economic potential that have attracted international companies to operate in the country. With the Colombia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with USA approved on 2011 and many other regional and worldwide government agreements, we find that increasing Colombia’s railway transporting capacity is a great business.

TRENCAR BUSINESS PLAN
In order to act as an authorized cargo transporter in Colombia’s railways, Trencar obtained the official license issued by Colombia’s Transportation Ministry. Trencar contracted the firm Valor & Estrategia that developed an operating and financial model; and in association with AE Ingenieria developed a operating plan suited to the specific conditions of the railway between La Dorada, Caldas and the Santa Marta Seaport. Trencar is also evaluating the cargo transporting to other ports in the Atlantic coast. The financial and operating model includes cargo volumes, operating and administrative costs, the required Capex, and implementation time among other important factors to develop this business.
