Seara invests R$ 50 million in port terminal

The rail terminal handling grain at the Port of Paranaguá is to be opened by January 2013 by Seara Agropecuária - based in Sertanópolis (North), with operations in the South, Southeast and Center-West of Brazil. The unit, which will have a capacity to ship 4.5 million tons of grain a year, will help improve export logistics and reduce waiting time for trains and trucks. In a R$ 50 million investment, the project will receive cargo from the states of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Mato Grosso do Sul. Static storage capacity is 100,000 tons.

Five miles from the port, the terminal will be able to operate normally even during peak season - when the BR-277 highway normally has long lines of trucks going to warehouses at the port. Cargo will be moved from the terminal to the port by a 50- wagon train, also bought by Seara Agropecuária to speed up the operations.
