Performance confirms increased productivity of Export Corridor

Figures from the Paranaguá Port Export Corridor show that the productivity of the complex is higher. From January to August, this year, for the three exclusive berths, there were 500,000 tons more cargo in almost the same amount of ships.

From January to August, 235 bulk carriers were loaded by the Paranaguá Port Export Corridor. Compared to the same period of 2018, the difference is only one vessel.

However, when analyzed the shipped volume, from 13.5 million tons exported by the Corridor in these eight months, in 2018, it increased to 14 million this year.

On average, one Corridor ship receives 60,000 tons of cargo – soybeans (grain or bran) and corn. That gap of half a million tons that was loaded this year would be enough to fill the holds of more than eight vessels.

“We are working more productively and efficiently. The dredging campaigns carried out by the Port Administration make it possible for larger ships with a larger shipment schedule to come to Paranaguá, ”says Parana Ports CEO Luiz Fernando Garcia.

As explained by the head of the Paraná Port Silos Division, Gilmar Francener, this means that ships are loading more in Paranaguá. He points out that, this year, even one ship loaded 90,110 tons of soybean meal, LAN HUA HAI.

RECORD – In addition, according to Francener, last August, the 28th, the Export Corridor reached the mark of 138,989 tons shipped in a single day, 24 hours period. The previous daily boarding record was on 09/16/2017, 134,057 tons.

This means more than 23,166 tons loaded per shiploader (equipment used for bulk loading in the hold); more than 965 tonnes shipped per hour by the six loaders – two in each cradle.

In June this year, as the head of the silos division still remembers, the mark of 2,291,024 tons shipped in a single month was reached.

“Our goal is to continue gaining in efficiency and productivity. These goals will be achieved through ongoing maintenance dredging campaigns (already underway), equipment repowering – which is in the bidding phase of the project – as well as intelligent operational management, time reduction and productivity maximization ”, says the head of the silos division.

The average time of berth in the Corridor is 65:55 hours, which is less than three days of operation.

NUMBERS – Of the 14 million tons of bulk exported by the Corridor this year, 7.3 million are soybeans, 3.8 million corn and 2.9 million bran. The most productive cradle in the period was the 213, where 88 ships docked and almost 5.4 million tons of products were handled.

“The differential of cradle 213 is that it works with ships called ‘super cradle’ that assume the condition of boarding a board (vessel volume per hour) higher than the normal average. Therefore, its productivity is always higher ”, he explains.

In berth 212, 72 ships (which carried 4.2 million tons) docked and in berth 214, 75 vessels (which received 4.4 million tons of the three products).

MODALS – The volume of grains and bran that reached the port of Paranaguá by rail increased 7.5%. From January to August, this year, there were 4.3 million tons unloaded from wagons. In the same period, in 2018, there were 4 million.

Of the 4.3 million tons – 2.62 million were soybean, 1.03 million corn and 646.2 thousand tons of soybean meal in rail. It was corn that was largely responsible for the increase.

Already the volume that arrived with bulk, in the port of Paranaguá, by road modal decreased. In 2018, in the eight months, 11 million tons arrived in trucks. This year, 10.5 million – 5.25 million soybeans, 2.85 million tons of corn and 2.4 million soybean meal.

From January to August, 283,071 trucks came down loaded with soy, bran and corn to the port of Paraná. In August alone there were 38,564. Of wagons, in the period, were 73,434. In the month, 9,371 wagons.
