Vehicle exports are on the rise in the Ports of Paraná. With the resumption of production by Renault and Volkswagen, in São José dos Pinhais, Metropolitan Region of Curitiba, and meeting international demand, which was hampered by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Port of Paranaguá will receive, in the coming weeks, six ships for boarding automobiles produced in the State.
This Monday (08), the ship at Dover HighWay embarks 2,473 vehicles bound for Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. Last Thursday (4), Paranaguá received the vessel General San Martin, which took 1,339 cars to Latin American countries. The ships Michigan HightWay, Greater Argentina, Gran San Paolo and the return of General San Martin are also expected to arrive.
According to the director of Port Operations, Luiz Teixeira Júnior, the resumption of exports is a positive indication that the international market is already recovering. “It is also important, because it shows that the Brazilian industry is returning to normality. These are jobs on the production line, in transport to the port and for Autonomous Port Workers, dockers and ushers, ”he says.
The qualification of the workforce of the so-called TPAs, of the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina, is internationally recognized. The damage rates recorded in the ports of Paraná are a reference for other Brazilian ports.
According to Arnaud Nobre Formiga, operations manager of the company that operates this type of shipment, Marcon Logística Portuária, the trend is that the pace of exports will gradually return to what it was before the pandemic. “There were almost two months without car movements at the Port of Paranaguá. The return to activities takes place with great care and safety, for factory workers and also for port workers, ”he says.
