With 4.1 million tons, Paraná ports have the best January in history

The year has already started with a record in terms of handling through the ports of Paraná. January closed with 4.15 million tons of cargo, including exports and imports. The volume handled in the first month is 15% higher than the almost 3.6 million tons registered in the same period of 2020 and the best January in the history of the ports.

“This was the best first month we’ve ever had on the move. It is the first time that we have surpassed four million tons in the first month”, comments the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia. The previous record for the month of January had been registered in 2016: 3.76 million tons.

“The new historical record was driven mainly by the increase in exports, with soybeans as the main product”, highlights Garcia. The volume of soybeans exported, he explains, is unexpected for the month and follows the pace that had been in place since the end of last year. “In January of last year, almost no soybeans were shipped here. This year, however, it was 714,870 tons,” he says.

According to the segment operators, the volume at the Port of Paranaguá would be the remainder of the past crop, which producers now need to sell to make room for the new crop.

EXPORTS – The volume exported in January was almost 2.19 million tons of cargo – 25% more than the 1.74 million tons registered in January 2021. In addition to soybeans, the most shipped products in the last month through the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina were the soybean meal (345,310 tons); sugar (224,009 tons); corn (218,358 tons); and chicken (176,425 tons).

IMPORTS – In the opposite direction, the volume of cargo imported by the terminals in Paraná totaled 1.8 million tons – 7% more than the 1.68 million tons imported in January last year. The products unloaded in greater volume at the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina were fertilizers: 903,300 tons in the last 31 days – almost 17% higher than the 772,838 tons landed in January 2021.

In addition to fertilizers, the products most downloaded in January were oil derivatives (410,834 tons); alcohol (70,412 tons); and malt and barley (69,090 tons).
