30.8 million tons: ports close 1st half with 6% increase in handling

The ports of Paraná closed the first semester with a movement of 30,898,006 tons loaded and unloaded, which represents an increase of 6% compared to the same period of 2022 (with 29,013,459 tons). Specifically in June, between imports and exports, 5,677,557 tons of cargo passed through the Paranaguá and Antonina terminals in the 30 days. Compared to June last year, which registered 3,181,077 tons, the increase was 12%.

The performance in the first six months helped Paraná reach the record for exports in the first semester and reinforces the positive expectation for the second semester, according to the assessment of directors of the public company Portos do Paraná. June registered the fourth consecutive monthly increase – March, April and May also saw an increase in volumes.

The director-president of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia, says that the increase in this first period of the year is directly influenced by the increase in exports. “We ended the first semester with an increase in exports, in all segments. However, the most significant increases were registered among solid bulk, mainly soy and sugar”, he comments.

Solid bulk represents almost 63.4% of total movement. From January to June, this year, 19,580,048 tons were moved in the segment, 7% more than the 18,254,915 tons registered last year.

In the last month alone, still in solid bulk, 3,748,971 tons were shipped and unloaded. The volume is 14.7% higher than the 3,268,248 tons of 2023. “Although we continue with a drop in imports in the segment, export volumes exceed and pull the data up”, comments the CEO.

PRODUCTS – Of soy, 1,578,472 tons were exported in June, 60% more than the 984,878 tons shipped in the same period last year. In the first half, 7,321,508 tons of the oilseed were loaded through the port of Paranaguá, 24% more than the 5,913,564 tons registered in the six months of 2023.

Bulk sugar shipments totaled 582,084 tons in June, 55% more than the 374,965 tons loaded in the same 30 days last year, and 1,668,102 tons in the year, 39% more than the 1,202,092 tons registered in 2023.

The exported volume of soybean meal reached 685,154 tons in June (25% more than the 548,384 tons of 2022), and 3,311,599 tons in the accumulated (12% more than the 2,949,431 tons loaded from January to June of last year).

In addition to these, a small volume of wheat was exported this year: 45,644 tons, 39% more than the 32,895 tons shipped in the first six months of 2023.

GENERAL – This year, exports amount to 3,994,905 tons in June and 20,142,131 in the accumulated result for the year. Compared to shipments registered last year, these are increases of 26% in 30 days (3,181,077 tons) and 16% in the semester (with 17,396,697 tons).

In general, in the other segments, increases were also significant. “Among general cargo products, for example, the increase in the movement of cargo in containers and vehicles stands out”, says the director of operations at Portos do Paraná, Gabriel Vieira.

Among the liquids, still according to Vieira, the increases are in exports of soy oil and petroleum derivatives and in imports of methanol, vegetable oils and, also in this sense, petroleum derivatives.

“We are starting the second semester with high expectations. There was a 6% increase in the accumulated movement in the first half, which is significant and gives us even more certainty that we can close the year with more than 60 million tons”, he concludes.
