In the first five months, general cargo exports by Paraná increased 7%

The export of general cargo through the terminals of the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina registered an increase of almost 12% in the month of May. This year, on the 31st day of the month, 757,603 tons of products were shipped. Last year, there were 653,609 tons.

In the first five months of the year, the increase registered was 7% compared to the same period last year. From January to May, operators loaded 3,410,844 tons of goods. In 2021, in the same period, 3,187,361 tons were shipped.

After solid bulk, the general cargo segment is the one that most moves the ports of Paraná. They are cargo in containers and vehicles, in addition to products in bags, bales or units, loaded directly into the holds of ships.

“What we have observed in this segment is that – in addition to the increase – the general cargo products shipped here are also becoming more diversified”, says the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

In 2021, from January to May, in addition to sugar in sacks, pulp, vehicles and containers, in the export sense, there was only the shipment of wheel loaders. This year, products such as winders-stretchers, vehicle bodies, corn flour (sacks), wood, paper and wood fiber panels were also loaded.

“In particular, these last products, that is, wood and derivatives, are items that are re-shipped on general cargo ships”, says Garcia.

HIGHLIGHTS – The volume of exported cargo in containers rose 8.16%, from 2,472,711 tons in the first five months of 2021 to 2,674,448 tons this year.

The increase registered in the shipment of pulp was even greater: 18%. While from January to May last year 278,216 tons of the product were loaded, this year 328,320 tons were loaded.

The third most exported product in the segment was sugar in sacks: 268,897 tons shipped, around 109,000 tons less than last year.
