Ports in Brazil: Invest or face collapse

Ports in Brazil: Invest or face collapse

A series of reforms, and around US$23.8 billion in private investment through 2017, is set to bring new operators to Brazilian ports, raise the sector's competitiveness, and reduce logistics costs by 30%, according to official targets. Brazil will certainly shrink its port infrastructure gap significantly, but it is clear that more must be done to overcome the bottlenecks affecting logistics competitiveness.

Strong demand
The port trade volume increased from 570.8 million tonnes per year (t/y) in 2002 to 904 million t/y in 2012, an increase of some 58.4%.

An ambitious program
Official figures estimate that investment will reach approximately US$23.8 billion through 2017 and port industry heavyweights are positioning Brazil as their primary target.

Greenfield projects to take 4-7 years
Greenfield projects are expected to take between four and seven years to go into operation, which means they will not be ready in time to relieve the predicted congestion of the coming years.
