With the new railroad, the cost of transporting MS grains to the port of Paranaguá could drop by 30%, according to experts

A reduction of up to 30% in the cost of transporting grain produced in the southern region of Mato Grosso do Sul to the port of Paranaguá, in Paraná, for export. This is the projection of specialists with the feasibility of the new Ferroeste project.

According to the government of Mato Grosso do Sul, it will be a new railroad that will connect Maracaju – the main grain producer in the state, Paranaguá. There will also be a branch connecting Maracaju to Dourados, another agricultural hub in Mato Grosso do Sul.

The project foresees the privatization and construction of 1,285 kilometers of tracks that should transport around 38 million tons in the first year of operation, 26 million of which will go to the port of Paranaguá, heading to other countries.

The entire stretch of the new Ferroeste that is not in the railway authorization program should be auctioned in 2022 at the São Paulo Stock Exchange. The estimated investment is R$30 billion. The company or group that won the concession will carry out the work and will have the right to explore the stretch for 60 years.

The technical-economic feasibility studies for privatization have already been delivered by Governors Reinaldo Azambuja (PSDB), from Mato Grosso do Sul and Ratinho Júnior (PSD), from Paraná, to the Ministry of Infrastructure.

Now, the federal government is going to schedule a series of project presentations for groups and companies interested in participating in the project’s concession auction.
