Rental of terminal for general cargo handling in the Port of Itaqui, in the State of Maranhão.
IQI 18 is a port terminal for general cargo (pulp) in the Port of Itaqui. The area in which the project will be installed is close to the south entrance of the port. The berth 99, to be built by the tenant, will not be part of the lease.
Access to the terminal can be done by road and rail. Access for trucks will be at the southwest end of the terminal. The proposed terminal was designed to receive pulp bales, mostly by rail.
It is planned to be built a new warehouse of approximately 24,000 m², equipped with cargo handling system composed of 3 gantry cranes and 12 forklifts. The unloading of the wagons will be carried out with the gantry, followed by the transport of the bales to the piles, with the help of the forklifts. The truck loading will be carried out exclusively with the forklifts.

Form of project announcement
Inclusion in infrastructure plan/strategy document
Brazil exported 11.3 million tons of pulp in 2015, of which 88% went through ports in the South and Southeast regions. The relevance of these ports is due to their geographical proximity to the Brazilian pulp mills and to the availability of rail access, decisive factors for pulp flow logistics.
The terminal will be part of the logistics chain of the pulp mill in Imperatriz/MA through the export of the product. The plant will have a dynamic capacity of about 1.5 million tons/year. Currently, this plant already exports its pulp production through the Port of Itaqui. Therefore, this is done through temporary port facilities.
