Port of Paranaguá expects to export 6.5 million tons of bulk in the 2nd quarter

The terminals operating at the Port of Paranaguá expect to load 6,568,990 tonnes of solid export bulk in the second quarter (April to June) of this year. On average, per month, the forecast is to ship 2,189,663 tons of soybeans, bran, sugar and corn.

The volumes of corn and sugar expected for the next three months encourage the segment. While from April to June, last year, there was no corn exported through the port of Paraná, this year operators must ship 980,000 tons of the product. “The expectation for the period is high, also for the volumes shipped in bulk sugar”, says the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

According to him, the expected increase in sugar is almost 8%. In the second quarter of 2021, 1,038,096 tons of the product were exported through the Port of Paranaguá. “This year, in the period, the expected volume is 1,120,000 tons”, he adds.

In total, the projected volume is around 1 million tons, less than what was handled in the same three months last year. The drop is mainly in soybeans, grains and bran. “The drop in production, due to adverse weather conditions in the field during soybean development, caused the terminals to reduce the expectation of product movement”, he says.

Of soybeans, in grain, the companies intend to ship just over 2,980,000 tons through the Port of Paranaguá in the second quarter. Of bran, almost 1,489,000 tons are expected.

CONSOLIDATED – The export of solid bulk through the Port of Paranaguá in the first quarter increased by 12.3% in relation to the same period last year. From January to March, 5,715,000 tons of soybeans, bran, sugar and corn were loaded by terminals in Paraná, compared to the record of 5,090,037 tons in the same three months of 2021.

“The increase in movement in this first quarter was mainly driven by the export of soybeans in grain and bran”, says Luiz Fernando Garcia.

In grain, there were 3,331,029 tons – about 18.6% more than the 2,809,033 tons registered in 2021. Of soybean meal, the volume exported was 1,315,233 tons in 2022. From January to March of the year last year were 937,108 tons. The increase was 40.3%.

Corn exports in the period were practically the same volume – 514,121 tons of grain were shipped this year. There was a drop in sugar volume: 554,617 tons loaded in the first quarter. In 2021, there were 752,358 tons.
