Export Corridor has historic monthly movement

The Port of Paranaguá Export Corridor registered the largest monthly movement since the company’s inauguration in 1973. The volume of bulk exported in the month reached 2,291 million tons, surpassing the previous record of 2,277 million tons recorded in April 2018.

“They are records behind records because the model of Paraná is unique in the country. The structure and configuration give us efficient boarding, “says the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

He explains that the biggest difference is that in Paranaguá, grains can be shipped simultaneously in three berths exclusively for bulk, and it is possible that one vessel receives merchandise from different producers – including small ones. “This agility to load the ship reduces the time and the operational costs, which makes Paranaguá more competitive than the other Brazilian ports,” he says.

BUSINESSES – The complex of Paraná includes eight private terminals that, together, have the capacity to store more than 1 million tons of products. It also has a vertical public silo, for 100 thousand tons of grains, and four horizontal ones, with a total capacity of 60 thousand tons.

The storage structures are interconnected by conveyor belts that take the products to the holds of the ships. The loading is done by six equipment (shiploaders) that operate in preferred cradles: 212, 213 and 214.

“The efficiency of our Export Corridor reflects not only on port operations, but across the entire business chain. As soon as we empty the warehouses faster, the terminals drain their loads with greater speed and there is a more agile loading. Other ships dock, the terminals can receive more cargo. This all reflects positively throughout the logistics chain, “adds Garcia.

MOVEMENT – According to Portos do Paraná, soy was the most exported product in June, with 48% of the total. There were almost 1.1 million tons shipped of the product. Maize accounted for 32% of the total, totaling 735 thousand tons. Of soybean meal were 20%, with more than 455,8 thousand tons exported.

The movement recorded in June this year is 35% higher than that registered in the same month in 2018. Last year, in the period, were 1.6 million tons of products shipped.

This year, only in June, 39 ships operated through the complex – 11 ships more than the same month of the previous year.

SEMESTER – In the first six months of the year, a total of 9.55 million tons of grain were shipped through the Port of Paranaguá Export Corridor. In the period, there were 161 ships that docked and operated through the three berths of the complex.

The most loaded product in the semester was soybeans – almost 5.4 million tons. Then comes the soybean meal, with more than 2.2 million tons, and corn, with almost 1.9 million tons.

Particularly noteworthy was the export of corn, which increased by 265.5% compared to the same period of 2018, when 519,399 tons were exported.

In general, total turnover registered in the first half of 2018, is still 6% higher than that of this year. In the first six months of last year, there were almost 10.2 million tons handled by the Export Corridor.
