Ports of Paraná record a 7% increase in general cargo handling in April

The ports of Paranaguá and Antonina exported and imported, in April, 4,952,059 tons of cargo. The volume is 7% greater than the 4,614,088 tons moved in the same 30 days of 2022. In the four-month period, the accumulated total exceeds 19 million tons, 2% more than the 18.7 million recorded from January to April in the year past.

Both in the last month and in the first four months of the year, exports exceed imports in volume and percentage. More than 62% of everything that the ports of Paraná handle are shipments, cargo leaving the State for all continents.

“The five main destinations for cargo leaving through the ports of Paraná, during this period, were China, Japan, South Korea, Holland and India”, says the Director of Operations at Portos do Paraná, Gabriel Vieira. He also points out that the most exported products in the year were the soy complex (grain, oil and bran), sugar and chicken. “The latter, in containers. The others, all in bulk”.

DETAILS – In April, exports totaled 3,175,309 tons, a volume 10% higher than in April last year, with 2,892,813 tons. “Only for soybeans in grain, in April we shipped almost 100% more compared to April 2022. This data confirms the change in the behavior of the new crop which, this year, is arriving later”, says Vieira.

In the four-month period, a total of 11,952,978 tons were exported. In comparison to the 10,972,696 tons accumulated from January to April last year, the increase obtained this year is 9%.

“In imports, we recorded a 6% increase in the month, but a 11% drop in the accumulated result for the four months”, highlights Vieira. “Different from what we observed in the first three months, in April the unloading of fertilizers, the main products that arrive here, rose again”.

In the last month of April, 1,916,365 tons of cargo entered the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina. In 2022, in the same 30 days, landings totaled 1,807,648 tons.

From January to April, this year, imports totaled 5,331,293 tons. Last year, 5,999,414 tons of products were unloaded.

PRODUCTIVITY – According to Gabriel Vieira, the 2% increase in the total volume handled in the first four months may seem small, but it is not. “Considering that, this year, from January to April, we had 5.5 more days of rain, the registered increase is very positive and confirms our efforts to be more productive and efficient in our operational times”, guarantees Vieira.
