  12. John Cuttin – Economic Impacts of Trade Corridors • Corridors are the new units of administration • “International delivery chains” • All players involved along the way • Impacts are NOT based on Input-Output models or procedures • Brazil: Integration Roundtables (focused on corridors) • Non-Profit: All pay dues to be members • Members: Producers (e.g. soy), railways, truckers, ports, shipping lines • Goal: reduce costs, eliminate bottlenecks, enhance trade, stimulate economic development, educate all parties involved

  13. Successes • Negotiated new trackage rights in Brazil (soybeans) • Reduced costs from $70/ton to $27/ton through port of Victoria • Houston has now adopted the INTEGRATION ROUNDTABLE perspective • Victoria – Houston relationship now growing THE FUTURE – • IR’s can find the cargo to fill the corridor • Negotiate transshipment arrangements on behalf of shippers/producers • Consolidate shipments • Lower transport costs and reduce headaches!
