Freight transport is very important to China's plans in Latin America and its continued global expansion. Land transport is vital to such an ambitious project as the New Silk Road, which seeks to grow world trade with China at the center.

In a context of trade and territorial dispute with the USA, China seeks to control more land routes in South America to move its goods more easily. This situation is one more example of the confrontation between Chinese and U.S. interests in Latin America.

It seems that China seeks an integration process in South America for its own benefit. The dispute is reflected in the development banks financed by each superpower and their percentage of participation in future constructions.

Since 2013, the New Silk Road initiative is a Chinese megaproject that seeks to connect 4 continents through land and maritime trade routes. More than 90 billion dollars have been invested in 57 countries in four continents.
Latin America is part of the Chinese expansion strategy. Through investment and loans for the development of infrastructure for trade and energy projects, China has established itself in the region and wants to dispute it with the USA.
In this context, the Pacific and Atlantic maritime routes of the continent become important for the expansion of the Asian country. From Mexico to Uruguay, China already controls docks and has projects for new ports.
