Organizing goods transport
The port of Lima (Callao) is the biggest port in Peru. Peru has 8,600 km of waterways (tributaries of the Amazon and 300 km on Lake Titicaca).
Air transport is often the only means to reach jungle areas inaccessible by road or the fastest way to reach some Andean populations. Secondary airports are those of Cuzco, Tacna, Arequipa, Iquitos, Ayacucho, Chiclao, Piura and Trujillo. Small airline companies offer regular flights between the country's cities. In 1994, 54 million tons of goods were transported by air.
