Port of Paranaguá has greater movement for the month of September

The Port of Paranaguá closed the month of September with the greatest movement of its history for the period. There were 5.01 million tons operated over 30 days. This represents an increase of 7% over the largest volume handled thus far, of 4.7 million tons.

With the result of September, the port of Paranaguá also has just beaten the historical mark of movement in the first 9 months of the year, with 40.9 million tons total. The volume is 1.4% higher than that registered in the period from January to September 2017, when they were operated for 40.3 million tons.

“We are reaping the results of all the public and private investments made in the last eight years,” said Lourenço Fregonese, director of port administration for Paranaguá and Antonina (Appa). “We reached these numbers with a very high movement of agricultural products, even outside the most traditional periods of crop runoff. We were able to meet the rural producers’ wishes and the seasonality of production. If the moment is more favorable for him to negotiate his production, the Port of Paranaguá is able to serve him, “emphasized Fregonese.

He said that Appa expects to surpass in 2018 the historic mark of handling of 51 million tons obtained in 2017.

SOY AND GENERAL LOADS – The highest volume product traded in September was soybeans, with 1.47 million tons exported during the month. During this period, 24 ships docked at Paranaguá to load the product. The volume exported this month was more than double that registered in September last year, when they shipped 637 thousand tons. During the month, the port received 35,000 trucks loaded with grain. The result was obtained without any row records. In exports, another highlight was the shipment of general cargoes (industrial parts, machinery, pulp). 683 thousand tons were exported during September, a volume 18% higher than the same period of 2017.

IMPORTATION – There was also growth in the main product imported by Paranaguá, the fertilizer. In September, 984 thousand tons of fertilizer were discharged, 46% more than the same month last year. In the year to date, the Port of Paranaguá recorded a 3% increase in the product turnover, with 7.03 million tons landed.
