The Latin Port Business pavilion is hosted at TranspoQuip Latin America 2013 and reflects the growing importance of ports at the event. The sector is on the move and thus deserves special atention. With an eye on the 2014 World Cup the Brazilian government is accelerating the privatization of national ports. Investments of around 40 billion BRL are foreseen. The industry is anxiously awaiting news from the government to start doing some serious business.

With a coast of 7.000 navigatable kilometers, Brazil’s port sector currently moves about 700 million tons of the most diverse merchandise and is responsible for over 90% of exports. Brazil’s port system is made up of 37 public sea and river ports. Of these, 18 have been delegated, granted or have its operation authorized by the administration of state and local governments. There are 42 terminals for private use and three port complexes, which operate under concession for the private sector.

Many investments are being announced in existing ports and private initiatives to build new ports keep making the news. Latin Port Business offers the solutions to realize these projects presenting a broad range of port issues, aiming to represent this varied industry in its entirety. It covers the vast array of terminal operations, port logistics, safety, port construction and interior design and furnishing of passenger terminals.

"A package of incentives for the cabotage system in the country is currently under discussion. The goal is to increase the flow of goods by this means of transport by reducing costs, increasing productivity and reducing the operational handling time. I am very pleased to support the Latin Port Business pavilion on TranspoQuip, because it encourages the modernization of ports and stimulates the discussion about the development of the sector. It will certainly contribute to the establishment of partnerships in the industry and grow future business."

Edison Vianna, Program Manager Ports at the Ministry of Transport
