Port of Paranaguá has a 14% increase in the April movement

The monthly cargo movement of the Port of Paranaguá grew 14% in April this year. It was 4.8 million tons, with 614 thousand tons more than the one registered in the same month in 2017. The data are from the Operations Department of the Port Administration of Paranaguá and Antonina (Appa).

The growth was driven, mainly, by the advance of the flow of the grain harvest. During the month, 2.1 million tons of soybean and 555 thousand tons of bran were exported, a volume 38% higher than last April. The performance in fertilizer imports also helped the result, with 649 thousand imported tons and a 14% increase in the month.

In the accumulated in the year, counting all the movement from January to April, the increase is 10.3%. In the first four months of 2018, there were 17.54 million tons of cargo, 11.17 million in exports and 6.37 million tons in imports of products.

“With efficient planning and management, the Port of Paranaguá became a benchmark in productivity in Brazil. The records successively beaten are an example of this, “said Governor Cida Borghetti.

FIELD – Grain shipments should boost exports in the coming months. Record levels are already recorded. According to Ocepar’s estimate, the whole of Brazil must produce 115 million tons of soybeans and Paraná will be responsible for harvesting almost 20 million of this total.

“With commodity prices on the rise and the favorable exchange rate for the producer, this entire crop will need to leave the field with agility to the sea,” says the Secretary of Infrastructure and Logistics, Abelardo Lupion.

DIVERSITY – Although the agricultural cargoes are the leaders of movement in Paranaguá, more and more industrial and other cargoes gain space in the port.

“The operational layout of the port has adapted to a new reality. Our goal is to serve all users well, from the agricultural producer, who has always been with us, to the industrialists. This is very important, because Paranaguá becomes the tip of an increasingly complex productive chain, generating income and jobs by the state, “says Appa’s CEO, Lourenço Fregonese.

From January to April, for example, the handling of general cargoes, which are industrial parts, vehicles, pulp and other non-bulk cargoes, increased by 8%, with 3.2 million tons handled in the period.

The liquid assets, led by the movement of vegetable oils and petroleum products, also had a strong increase, of 15% in 2.6 million tons moved.
