The Port of Paranaguá inspected on Wednesday (31), 40 vehicles shipped to Africa. The action, coordinated by the Port Guard, is part of the new security protocol and aims to combat drug trafficking.
Now, all the vehicles loaded in the port of Paraná go through a preview as they get off the storks that transport them to the courtyard. “Then, a new IRS regulation requires the operator responsible for boarding the cars on the ship to make a new survey,” says the chief of the Administrative Port Security Unit (UASP), Major César Kamakawa.
The survey also continues the mega operation which surveyed about 109 vehicles on July 9, with the support of the Military and Federal Police. “We have worked together to combat criminal practices and, so far, have investigated the possibility that drugs, such as those located on the coast of Africa, are not being shipped here in the port of Paranaguá, but when the ship has already left the Paraná State coast ”, states the major.
New operation is already scheduled, but for confidentiality, the date has not been announced.
