Port of Paranaguá registers highest daily bulk shipment

This week, the Port of Paranaguá recorded the highest daily shipment volume of 2023. In a single day, around 117,798 tons of soybeans in grain and bran were loaded, only through the East Export Corridor. The milestone was recorded last Tuesday (12), but the high expectation continues for this entire second quarter.

The terminals and operators that use not only the complex, but also the other berths to the west of the port in Paraná, expect to ship 8,326,500 tons of solid bulk for export from this month of April and until next month of June. The volume, if achieved, will be 38.8% higher than the consolidated volume in the first quarter of 2023, which registered 5,999,490 tons shipped.

“This year, our focus has been on improving productivity rates with terminals and port operators”, says the director-president of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia. “Together with the entire port community, we have sought to optimize our operating times, almost eliminating idleness in the berths”, he explains.

According to Director of Operations Gabriel Vieira, there is a growing demand for Brazilian soy and the performance of the ports in Paraná shows the preparation to guarantee the successful disposal of the production of the 2022/2023 harvest.

“We ended the first quarter showing that we are prepared for the expected increase in demand from the foreign market,” he says. “When we had availability, we operated with great efficiency and quality, which has generated reliability in our structures and capacity”, he concludes.

PRODUCTS – Also according to the expectations of operators of solid bulk exports, the volume of soy expected to be shipped in this second quarter of the year reaches 5,502,500 tons. Of the bran product, another 1,397,000 tons and of sugar, 1,395,000 tons. For corn, the expected amount is considered small – 32 thousand tons.

FIRST QUARTER – In the first quarter of the year, through the East and West export corridors of the Port of Paranaguá, 5,999,490 tons of bulk were loaded. The volume was 7% higher than that recorded in the first quarter of 2022, with 5,617,605 tons. In January, 1,663,632 tons were loaded. In February, 1,881,506 tons (+13.10%, compared to the previous month), and, in March, it reached 2,439,348 tons (29.65% more).

From January to March, the largest volume shipped was soybeans in grain: 2,103,566 tons. Next come corn (1,914,439 tons) and soybean meal (1,432,325 tons). 503,515 tons of sugar were loaded in bulk.

A small volume of wheat was shipped through the complex in the first quarter: 45,644 tons.
