Automaker based in Rio Grande do Sul starts exporting vehicles through the Port of Paranaguá

The Port of Paranaguá was chosen by GM – Chevrolet for shipments of vehicles produced in Rio Grande do Sul. In 2022, 2,372 vehicles of the brand were exported by Paranaguá and, for this month of January alone, another 1,350 are already confirmed.

The operational advantages of the port in Paraná motivated the change of route. According to the main port operator of vehicles in the State, the company Marcon, Paranaguá has attracted the market by offering differentiated conditions in the operation of Ro-Ro ships (rolling loads).

“We were able to ship a large quantity in a short time and with a very low rate of damage. This makes the Port of Paranaguá more attractive, even if road freight is more expensive on this route change”, says Patrick Ferreira Tavares, manager of Marcon.

VEHICLES – Of the 82,065 cars that passed through the Port of Paranaguá in 2022, 57,359 were exported. Boarding represents almost 70% of the total handled by the segment. The other 30% are landing: 24,706 cars.

In exports, the main movements are from Renault and, since last year, from GM. In terms of imports, the main automakers arriving in Paraná are Audi and Volkswagen.

Last year, Renault exported 49,382 vehicles and imported another 587. Audi imported 4,595 cars. From Volkswagen, 19,524 were imported and 5,876 were exported. From GM, 2,372 were exported.

The main destinations for cars exported through the Port of Paranaguá were Mexico, Colombia and Uruguay. The main origins of imports are Argentina, Hungary, Mexico and Germany.

“In addition to the news from GM, in 2022, from Volkswagen, for example, we had vehicle models exported here that were previously shipped from other Brazilian ports”, says the Marcon representative.
