By the end of April this year, more than 11,800 tons of cotton yarns and bales left Brazil through the port of Paranaguá - Brazil's second busiest port for this product. Considering the same 4 months of 2019, in which the sum reached only 331 tons, the growth was 3098%.
With a good infrastructure and agile operations, Paranaguá has been standing out when it comes to cargo handling, especially containerized cargo. TCP, responsible for the administration of the area, recorded a record of 85,926 containers handled in April.
Besides cotton, another important product that usually leaves with a larger volume from the port of Paranaguá is frozen chicken. Until April 2020 it was 590 thousand tons and more than USD 852, mostly coming from the state itself and destined to Asia.
Beef also had a considerable increase: 42% more compared to the previous year, that is, more than 116 thousand tons until April. Unlike poultry, the beef exported by Paranaguá comes mostly from other states: São Paulo, Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul.
