Volume of soybeans exported by Paraná already exceeds the total of 2019

The volume of soybeans shipped by the Export Corridor of the Port of Paranaguá in the last eight months already exceeds 5.1% of the total exported in 2019. From January to August, almost 11.15 million tons of grain were exported. In the last year, from January to December, just over 10.6 million tons of oilseed were shipped through the complex.

Considering all the bulk handled, the volume reached around 14.9 million tons of soy, bran and corn. With four months to go until the end of the year, the corridor has already handled almost 74% of the total volume registered in 2019 – 20.2 million tons.

“The port activity went against the other sectors of the world economy. That’s because we supply other countries with food. Paraná is a major producer, considered the world’s breadbasket. We managed to supply the domestic market and send the surplus to the foreign market ”, highlights the president of the public company Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

NEGOTIATION – In the eight months of 2019, the Paraná complex exported around 13.9 million tons of solid bulk – soy, bran and corn. In the same period, in 2020, there were 14.9 million tons. Increase of 7%.

The good moment is motivated, mainly, by the dry weather, favorable exchange rate and the record soybean harvest. In August, the commercialization values ​​of the product reached R $ 135.00. The record for the bag is R $ 139.00, in September 2012.

Commercialization is well advanced in Brazil. The 2021 harvest already has almost 60 million tons traded, at an average price of R $ 122.00 per bag. What draws the attention of industry experts is the anticipation of the sale of the next two harvests, with more than 3 million tonnes negotiated.

“This advance sale is unprecedented. Countries want to guarantee future supplies, with a fear of food shortages, due to the pandemic. In addition, soybeans have an excellent value for the Chinese market, which favors negotiations ”, explains Garcia.

SOYA – The increase registered in the volume of soybeans exported by the Port of Paranaguá, from January to August, in the comparison of 2020 and 2019, is impressive. This year, with almost 11.15 million tons, the total of soybeans shipped through the corridor is 52.63% higher than last year’s 7.3 million tons.

Exports of soybean meal in these eight months are also higher. With almost 3.2 million tons of product handled down the corridor this year, the volume is 10.3% higher than last year, in the period, with just over 2.9 million tons.

The main destination for soybeans is China (91%), with another 14 countries buying 10% of the product that leaves via Paranaguá. The soy meal, 23% is sent to Holland, 18% to France and 13% to South Korea. The rest is destined for another 15 countries.

CORN – The volume of corn shipped, little by little, begins to grow, mainly due to the arrival of the new harvest. However, in the comparison of the accumulated of 2020 with 2019 it still presents a fall. This year, only 546,334 tonnes of the product were exported through the Paranaguá Port Corridor. In 2019, from January to August, more than 3.7 million tons of product were shipped.

As the operators of the complex explain, the drop of more than 85% is justified by the atypical performance of corn in the market. This year, however, soy has gained more space.

According to the latest bulletin, Department of Rural Economy (Deral), of the State Secretariat of Agriculture and Supply, approximately 67% of the corn crops (second crop 19/20) have already been harvested and 59% of the total expected production (11.7 million tons) are already sold.

Quantidade embarcada pelo Corredor de Exportação do Porto de Paranaguá nos últimos oito meses já supera em 5,1%, o total exportado nos doze meses do ano passado. De janeiro a agosto de 2020, foram quase 11,15 milhões de toneladas exportadas do grão.
