Paranaguá Port is a reference in bus exports

The Port of Paranaguá embarked on Thursday (15) a batch of 110 buses bound for the Port of Boma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in Africa. The vehicles are part of a shipment of 440 collectives that will be exported to the continent. With this, the port of Paraná reaffirms its position as the main exit port for buses and minibuses produced in Brazil.

According to the director of Port Operations, Luiz Teixeira da Silva Júnior, the choice for Paranaguá considers the strategic location, boarding efficiency and qualified labor. “The ports in Paraná have regular lines, optimizing transportation costs. In addition, the service provided by independent workers is recognized for its high quality and low damage rate, an important factor in the handling of equipment with high added value ”, he says.

OPERATION – The vessel Maestro Universe was specially chartered for the operation and docked at Porto Dom Pedro II at around 5 am. “This is a big movement, different due to the number of buses. Altogether, there will be 440 vehicles, divided into four shipments of 110 buses each ”, explains Aldemar Marques Moreira, Operations Manager at Marcon, the company responsible for handling the cars in partnership with Wasa, which exports.

“Another difference is the size of the vehicles, which require a lot of support. As they are big cars, they take up a lot of space and depend on special logistics to accommodate the ship. But the operation is very fast, around five hours ”, he adds.

For this reason, care in handling buses is essential. The port of Paraná has one of the lowest damage rates in Brazil.

CONTINUITY – The embarkation sequence for the other 330 buses is scheduled for December, January and February. The vehicles were made by Marcopolo, from Caxias do Sul (RS), on Volvo base frames, which are manufactured in Curitiba.

All of them are already prepared to face the pandemic, with special isolation for drivers, called BioSafe.

This is the second bus shipment to the African continent this year. In July there were 130 buses to Angola, also via Paranaguá with joint operation by Marcon and Wasa.
