Urgent humanitarian corridor due to emergency on the Pan-American Highway: Colfecar

“Given that there is no locative infrastructure at this border crossing, nor equipment to lower and lift containers or handle loose cargo, it is necessary to carry out direct transport, i.e. that Colombian vehicles can reach their final destination in Ecuador and vice versa,” he said.

He added: “It is necessary to strengthen the human resources of the DIAN at the San Miguel border, so that it does not become a bottleneck, and it is necessary to speed up the import and export process through this border, in the form of pre-declaration”.

Colfecar said the landslide is forcing them to take the alternative Cali route – ibague – Espinal – Guamo- Neiva–Pitalito – Mocoa – Santana – San Miguel International Bridge and vice versa.

“Within the routes for the international transit regime under resolution 2083 of 2019, this route does not exist, so we ask for the support of the DIAN to authorize it and thus be able to activate international operations from Calisaid Hernandez.
