Exclusive CTLA 2012 video: Latin American insights

By Richard High24 July 2012

Exclusive videos are now available of presentations made at the International Cranes and Transport Latin America conference in Sâo Paulo, Brazil in late May 2012.

Nearly 200 industry professionals gathered at the first International Cranes and Transport Latin America conference in Sâo Paulo, Brazil.

The overwhelming view from the 13 speakers, 16 sponsors and near 200 delegates was that the event had played a significant role in supporting the Brazilian crane and transport industry.

With so many challenges in terms of under developed road systems, bureaucracy and the lack of a qualified workforce, to name but three, speakers said they were facing a difficult challenge to achieve the required legislation and investment.
