First group of 2022 came from São Paulo; the expectation is to make fortnightly visits and the registration is a kilo of non-perishable food
Last Saturday (08), 27 students and 3 professors got to know TCP’s facilities and work, in Paranaguá. They are students of the administration course of the Federal Institute of São Paulo (IFSP), São Roque Campus. This was the first group to visit the terminal since the suspension of guided tours during the COVID-19 pandemic, which began in 2020.
For most, it was the first time they had contact with a port terminal. Professor Carlos Araripe was the one who accompanied the students by bus until they arrived in Paraná. According to him, the interest in seeing the terminal arose in the supply chain management class. “Considering that TCP is the largest container terminal in South America, located in a region of rare beauty and rich in culture, it was very easy to sell the idea to the students!”, emphasizes the professor.
After a brief presentation in the training room, the visitors enjoyed the panoramic view on the fourth floor of TCP’s administrative building. The last stage was a bus tour through the terminal courtyard to the end of the pier to follow closely the ship operations. TCP’s Marketing and Logistics Manager, Mateus Campagnaro, points out that “the visits give students practical knowledge about the work done by TCP and also bring us closer to the community and students. Thus, students learn more about port logistics, foreign trade and learn about the relevance of the activities performed by the port segment for Brazil”.
At the end of the visit, those interested in working in the logistics sector in Paranaguá could register their resumes on TCP’s website. The proposal is to hold the visits for universities every two weeks until the end of the year. The registration is made upon the delivery of a kilo of non-perishable food, which will be donated to vulnerable communities in Paraná’s coast. The visits can be requested directly through TCP’s website, in the contacts tab: https://www.tcp.com.br/contatos/.
