TCP, the company that manages the Paranaguá container terminal, participated for the 21st time in Intermodal South America, held between February 28 and March 2, in São Paulo-SP. With a 102 square meter stand, the company presented to visitors the various services provided by the terminal, as well as the company’s advances in recent years through continuous investments in the terminal’s infrastructure.
