Freight transport is also facilitated by the country's proximity to major shipping routes.
El Salvador has an incredible location for manufacturing companies that seek short response times to meet customer demands in North and South America. Likewise, the country’s modern port and airport infrastructure is determinant for companies to have efficient logistics operations.
