Series of records consolidates good year in the ports of Paraná

Paraná ports close the year with fifteen broken records. The historic movement of more than 55 million tons of cargo handled, the largest number of trucks received at the Sorting Yard, the largest grain ship ever received, among others, made the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina stand out in the national sector .

“Despite the health crisis, the ports of Paraná advanced. The State had a spectacular soybean harvest and the price of the product in the international market favored exports. In addition, sugar was very prominent, frozen chicken and vegetable oil ”, comments the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

For him, the results achieved reflect the work of the entire team and the port community. “The stevedores, the companies, the truck drivers, the railroad workers, each did their part so that the port would not stop and, more than that, exceed all the goals”, evaluates the director.

The number that most represented the marks hit by the terminals in Paraná was reached on the last day of November: 55,382,000 tons of cargo handled in 11 months. The best result in history, surpassing the annual record achieved in 2019.

In the assessment of the Director of Port Operations, Luiz Teixeira da Silva Júnior, good management in the different segments allowed for growth in productivity. “The Port of Paranaguá, which, in the 1970s, made 5 million tons a year, today, makes almost 6 million tons a month. This is because the system has developed, not with geographical expansions, but with improvements over time, with operational and scale gains ”, he highlights.
