Port of Paranaguá receives 24% more trucks in 2020

In 2020, about 350 thousand trucks passed through the port of Paranaguá. The number is 24% higher than in the first eight months of 2019, when just over 293 thousand vehicles were received. Truck drivers, who did not stop during the Covid-19 pandemic, are responsible for 84% of product movements that arrive or leave through the port of Paraná.

“Drivers are essential to the national economy, they are the ones who transport our wealth, our food, medicines and hospital supplies. In the coronavirus crisis, they showed, once again, the strength of the category ”, highlights the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

This Wednesday (16), the National Trucker Day is celebrated.

CAUTION – With the coronavirus crisis and the soybean supersafra, the truck drivers’ work ensured the maintenance of port activities and records in grain exports. To provide security for drivers and their families, the State Government has set up a health and prevention structure.

“Since March 24th, all truck drivers and companions that pass through the Ports of Paraná undergo an initial screening, with temperature measurement and 24-hour medical care. The goal is for drivers to be able to work in peace, knowing that their health is a priority ”, says Garcia.

In all, 359,013 people passed through the structure. The Truck Sorting Patio also received hand washing sinks, new showers, drinking fountains, trays and sanitizing carpets.

In conjunction with the Ministry of Health and the State Secretary of Health, 5,000 doses of flu vaccine were made available.

FOOD – During the most critical days of the pandemic, Portos do Paraná distributed 55,000 food kits to drivers. The action was a way to help truck drivers who were struggling to find restaurants open on the roads.

Truck driver Eliézer Rodrigues, who came from Ponta Grossa loaded with soybeans, was surprised by the delivery. “It is an important care. We certainly feel more valued, ”he said.

PARTNERSHIP – Through the Sest / Senat System, more than 3,000 hygiene kits were also distributed. Companies and unions also carried out actions for the public, with the delivery of snacks and alcohol gel.

RECORD – In April, the Sorting Yard of the Port of Paranaguá even received 58,499 trucks. Three thousand vehicles above the previous record of 55,835 in March this year.
