Porto Itapoá sponsors Logistique 2023
Porto Itapoá is one of the sponsors of this year’s edition of Logistique – Logistics, Multimodal Cargo Transport, International Trade, Technology, and Intralogistics Fair. The fair takes place from August 22nd to 24th, in Joinville, Santa Catarina, and the event is considered one of the largest and most important in the logistics sector in Brazil.
“Logistique established its position among the most important events in the logistics sector in Santa Catarina and Brazil. In all its editions, the main players in the segment have gathered to share experiences and news and to fraternize. It is a huge pleasure to have Porto Itapoá as a sponsor, which shows our interest and enthusiasm in promoting the market in our region,” says the president of Porto Itapoá, Cássio José Schreiner.
Porto Itapoá completed 12 years of operations in July and has consecutive handling records. Its operations grew 18% in the first half of this year, compared to the same period last year, and its strategic position among the most productive regions in Brazil (along with importers and exporters from various business segments) ensures excellent prospects for the future.
The private terminal is located on the North Coast of Santa Catarina and is considered one of the most agile, efficient, and sustainable in Latin America. It ranks fourth in the national ranking of containerized cargo handling.
The BRL 750 million investment will enable TAP to operate with an area for storage and cargo handling of 450 thousand square meters. Last year, the terminal expanded its operating area by 50,000 m², increasing static capacity to up to 22,000 containers. Furthermore, the port is investing over BRL 120 million in the acquisition of new equipment, including ten new RTGs (which are cranes on tires) operated by remote control, which will make Porto Itapoá a pioneer in Latin America in this type of operation.
