Visit to the port structure of the container terminal took place during Sul Export.

This Monday (10), public authorities, representatives of regulatory agencies, businessmen and leaders of entities in the port logistics and infrastructure sector from all over the country were at the Paranaguá Container Terminal (TCP) for a visit to the company’s structures and facilities. The tour is part of the program of Sul Export – Regional Forum on Logistics, Infrastructure and Transport, an event promoted by Brasil Export, which aims to foster dialogue, encourage innovation and promote knowledge in the sector.

During the visit, restricted to event participants, it was possible to see up close how the operation of the so-called largest frozen chicken meat export corridor in the world works, which in the first four months of 2023 alone handled more than US$ 2.23 billion in frozen protein. “Our results reflect the terminal’s commitment and our mission to continue investing in the logistics operations sector, offering the best services to our customers and contributing to the country’s economic development,” says TCP’s institutional superintendent, Allan Chiang.

To meet the growing logistics demand in the sector, several investments should be consolidated by the terminal later this year. One of them is the expansion of the number of outlets for reefer containers (with temperature control), from the current 3,572 to 5,126. This will make TCP the absolute leader in infrastructure for the Brazilian meat market. The other is the delivery of the power substation and the 11 tire-mounted port cranes (RTGs).

The Minister of the Superior Labor Court, Breno Medeiros, was present at the visit and is one of the guests of the panel “Exclusivity and reflections of technology in the port labor relationship”. For him, “it is extremely important to bring together various actors linked to port activity to listen and discuss good practices in this sector, better forms of management, labor relations and commercial issues that involve these operations”.

According to data released at the event, port activity represents approximately 50% of the jobs occupied in the city of Paranaguá, with TCP being the largest employer in the municipality, with more than 1400 employees. Currently, the port sector is responsible for 57% of the collection of Taxes on Services of Any Nature (ISS) in the municipality.
