Port of Paranaguá breaks historic record and exceeds 52 million tons moved in 2018

The port of Paranaguá, located on the coast of Paraná, has just hit another historic record in cargo handling.

The terminal reached the mark – between January 1 and December 28 – of 52,259,856 million tons handled, both in exports and imports.

The number of ship berths in Oporto was 2,292 during this period.

It is expected that the terminal will reach the mark of 52.650 million tons handled in 365 days of the year 2018. This value is almost 15% higher than the record registered in 2013, which was 46.1 million tons and exceeds by more than one million tons the amount traded in 2017.

According to the Port Administration of Paranaguá and Antonina (Appa), terminal growth was possible due to the grain harvest – Paranaguá is one of the main points of sale of this type of harvest in the country – and to public and private investments made to increase the efficiency of the port of Paraná. “This performance was possible due to the improvement of the operational conditions of the port. The efficiency, with gain in productivity, is the result of public investments in the order of R $ 964 million and other R $ 3 billion in contributions from the private sector, “explains the managing director of the Port Administration of Paranaguá and Antonina (APPA), Lourenço Fregonese.

Main products – Altogether, there were 33.4 million tons of exported products and 19 million tons imported, between grains that went to other countries and fertilizers that arrived to serve the Brazilian crops.

Soybean, once again, was the flagship among the products exported by Paranaguá, with 15 million tons and representing 29% of the total exported. Soybean meal, with 5.4 million tons, 3.3 million tons of sugar, frozen products totaled 1.8 million tons and pulp, which represented 1.2 million tons of exports.

Imports, which totaled 19 million tons, were leveraged by the fertilizer – a product of greater volume that arrives at the Port of Paranaguá, with 10 million tons moved.

Following are the fuels and mineral oils, with 3.7 million tons, ethyl alcohol, with 870 thousand tons and malt and barley, with 367 thousand tons. This year, agribusiness accounted for 70% of all port movement.
