Ports of Paraná predicts a 203% increase in soybean movement in the last quarter

Portos do Paraná expects to move 3.647 million tons of soybeans in the last quarter of 2023. The volume, if confirmed, will represent a growth of 203% compared to the same period in 2022 (1.2 million). These numbers follow growth throughout the year. From January to August 2023, 10.1 million tons of soybeans were exported, 10% more than what was recorded in the same period last year (8.1 million). Currently, the soybean movement represents 25% of the general movement of ports in Paraná.

Soybean meal is another segment highlighted in the estimates for this end of year. The public company is expected to move 1.4 million tons of product from October to December, 72% more than in the same period last year.

According to the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia, these values will be influenced by several factors, including the increase in the draft, which is the depth at which loaded ships can be submerged in the water. “This change provided more logistical security and attracted larger ships to the State Coast”, he states.

The Director of Operations at Portos do Paraná, Gabriel Vieira, mentions another aspect: the performance of the two Export Corridors, East and West. “With great efficiency, they supplied the necessary movement to meet the growing market demands and are ready for the next quarter”, he adds. In the first half of this year, the Eastern Corridor of the Port of Paranaguá, for example, recorded the largest cargo movement in half a century.

MOEGÃO – In addition to the current structure, Portos do Paraná will begin this quarter the construction of Moegão, an exclusive rail unloading system for grains and bran, which promises a 63% gain in cargo unloading capacity. There are R$592 million in investments to guarantee the movement of grains in the State.

Implementing Moegão will also be fundamental to the success of another investment, Nova Ferroeste. The work will expand the route of the current Ferroeste to expand the State’s railway unloading area, which currently operates in the section between Cascavel and Guarapuava. The railway will connect Maracaju, in Mato Grosso do Sul, to Paranaguá and will be 1,567 kilometers long, with branches also leaving from Cascavel to Foz do Iguaçu and Chapecó (SC).
