Operational strategies were essential to meet the large market demand and export more than 35 million tons through Paraná ports
From January to October 2023, Portos do Paraná recorded 15% growth in export movements. In total, 35,198,778 million tons were moved, an increase of 4.5 million tons compared to 2022. The cargoes that were highlighted were soybeans, sugar and bran; the main destinations being China, South Korea and Japan.
According to the CEO, Luiz Fernando Garcia, “to meet the high market demand, we are working hard on the operational system and focusing on strategies for Portos’ growth. In the coming months, we will begin construction of Moegão, an exclusive rail unloading system for grains and bran, which promises a 63% gain in cargo unloading capacity.” For this work, R$592 million will be invested.
Total cargo movement, including import and export, was 53,360,117 tons, 3.66 million tons more compared to the previous year (7.4% growth). The operations director of Portos do Paraná, Gabriel Vieira, explains “the market showed great demand throughout and we optimized our docking and undocking maneuvers and planned logistics in order to serve as much as possible the largest number of ships during the period.”
The expectation is that, by the end of the year, Portos do Paraná will reach a total of 62 million tons imported and exported, representing a growth of approximately 6.2% compared to 2022.
