Located in the city of Navegantes, Santa Catarina state, Portonave started operating in October 2007, as Brazil’s first private port terminal. The Company distributes the production of the South, Southeast and Midwest regions of Brazil and other South American countries and receives cargo from all over the world.
Internationally recognized for its quality services and high productivity, the company directly employs more than 1,100 employees and is committed to excellence and the promotion of sustainable development.
One of Portonave’s important competitive differentials is Iceport, a fully automated cold storage chamber, with six transelevators, and static capacity for 16,000 pallet positions. It also has an antechamber with 13 docks for receiving cargo. Its storage area totals 50,000 sqm.
Currently, Portonave’s area totals 400,000 sqm, divided into three mooring berths, in a 900-meter linear quay, with static storage capacity of 30,000 TEUs (a measurement unit equivalent to one 20-foot container).
It is worth mentioning the terminal’s infrastructure: six portainers, 18 transtainers, 40 terminal tractors, five Reach Stacker forklifts and four empty loaders, one scanner and 2,100 reefer outlets are among the differentials offered by Portonave.
