SAO PAULO/RIO DE JANEIRO Jan 15 (Reuters) - The board of Brazilian transportation company Rumo Logistica Operadora Multimodal SA recommended the cancellation of a planned capital increase due to the macroeconomic outlook and market instability, according to a Friday filing.

The company known as Rumo ALL said it had already begun studying a new capital increase.

Cosan Logistica SA, transport arm of the group holding about 20 percent of Rumo's common shares, said in a separate filing it was still committed to injecting at least 250 million reais ($62 million) of an anticipated new capital increase of around 2 billion reais.
