In view of expectations for a record grain crop, the Paranagua and Antonina Port Administration is preparing those ports to ensure smooth operations. In addition to attention and control of the flow of trucks on roads giving access to the terminals, they will also monitor the movements of the vessels arriving to receive the soyabeans, starting this month.
Presently, of the 56 ships waiting to berth at the Parana state ports, 27 will load grain cargoes (26 of them in the Export Corridor in the Port of Paranagua). However the majority of the vessels are waiting for the full load of soyabeans to be available. Until the soyabean cargo starts arriving at full tilt, maintenance and dredging of the port complex are being concluded.
The port operators estimate that approximately 10 million tons of soyabeans will be shipped this year.
Keeping you duly posted!
