In the transition from Álvaro Uribe Velez's government to Juan Manuel Santos, the new leader began to guide government policies through the National Development Plan 2010 - 2014: “Todos por un Nuevo País”, and after his re-election, through the National Development Plan 2014 – 2018: “Prosperidad para Todos”; emphasizing on both, the importance of implementing programs that contribute to the improvement of the country's logistics infrastructure, in order to modernize and boost this key sector for competitiveness in international trade. However, the main indices that measure this logistic performance, highlight the different logistical shortcomings that the country presents, showing similar results and placing the country with scores and questionable positions in the period of study time. In this sense, it is necessary to study the logistic infrastructure and its effects in Colombia on competitiveness in international trade, through the indicators established in the two Development Plans of President Juan Manuel Santos. For this, a mixed approach will be used to carry out a process of collecting, analyzing and linking quantitative and qualitative data. On the one hand the purpose of a qualitative approach is evident because the two Development Plans implemented by President Juan Manuel Santos will be examined; and on the other hand, the quantitative approach will be used because the research will be based on logistics infrastructure indicators aimed at improving the country's transport modes
