Inclusion in infrastructure plan/strategy document
The port terminal will meet the pulp mill supply chain demand in Ortigueira / PR, for the export of the product. The plant will have a dynamic capacity of about 1.5 million tons / year.
The port of Paranaguá is one of the five main ports that export paper and pulp in Brazil. Exports of this cargo in the Port of Paranaguá are mainly destined for China. The paper originates in the states of Paraná and Santa Catarina.
Based on the analysis of demand and capacity, alternatives for infrastructure expansion were identified as necessary to overcome deficits in cargo handling capacity. The proposed project will raise the service level of the Port of Paranaguá to the general cargo segment.
