Mexican Association of Railroads (Asociación Mexicana de Ferrocarriles, A.C.)
The AMF's main purpose is to promote rail freight transport, increasing its contribution to the competitiveness of the Mexican economy. For this purpose and with the representation of its members, the AMF collaborates with the authorities of the executive and legislative branches to promote that the regulation of the rail service effectively promotes it and that it contributes to the competitiveness of the Mexican economy, in terms of security and healthy coexistence with the communities through which we travel. Additionally, the Association collaborates with other modes of transport in order to achieve an effective intermodal scheme. Also, we coordinate with other Chambers and User Associations, advancing on an agenda that identifies areas of opportunity and joint solutions.
