Port of Paranaguá receives another load of imported corn

Port of Paranaguá receives another load of imported corn

Another ship docked on Wednesday (28) at the Port of Paranaguá to unload corn. There are 32 thousand tons of the product imported from Argentina. This is the fourth vessel that arrives at the Paraná terminal this year, bringing the cereal. Since January, 102,719 tonnes of Argentine corn have been landed.

The Ocean Royal is scheduled to dock at 5 pm and is scheduled to start operating on the same day. The responsible company is Fortesolo, which also handled the Aurora SB ships in May (35,319 tons); Sirius Sky in June (36,870); and Interlink Nobility, earlier this month (30,530).

According to the Director of Operations at Portos do Paraná, Luiz Teixeira da Silva Júnior, port operators who work in unloading the product have specialized equipment, which increases productivity rates and attracts importers.

“The Port of Paranaguá is able to meet market demands, both in exports and imports, and in the most diverse types of cargo, fully meeting its functions, according to the needs of the customers”, says Teixeira.

The berths used for unloading corn are intended for other bulk imports such as salt, fertilizers, wheat, malt and barley.

MARKET – The low performance of the corn crop, due to adverse weather conditions, in Paraná and other producing states, increased the demand for imports. The product will be used for the production of animal feed.

According to the CEO of Fortesolo, Marco Ghidini, the unloading should take about five days. Part of the product goes directly to cooperatives and part will be stored in Paranaguá.

“The operation requires great care, as it is a food product. Our team takes special care so that there is no type of contamination and that the grain reaches customers with complete integrity”, he says.

DEMAND – The fall in the Brazilian crop, which affected the production of off-season corn, increased expectations of record imports. According to analyst Edmar Gervásio, from the Department of Rural Economy (Deral), of the State Secretariat for Agriculture and Supply, the demand for the cereal is due to the high consumption of the product by the swine and poultry chain.

“The corn that supplies these production chains is specific for this purpose. It is produced in Paraná, Mato Grosso and Goiás. With the significant drop, it is necessary to buy the product from neighboring countries like Argentina and Paraguay”, he says.

The analyst also explains that despite the expectation of an increase in imports, the numbers are not very relevant, considering the volume of Brazilian corn production. “The country should produce more than 90 million tons, while imports should not reach two million tons.”
