Integrated Management System (IMS)

Portonave operates under an Integrated Management System (IMS). Based on ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management), the system involves all of the Port Terminal’s activities. With an interactive and integrated system, which is in constant communication, the IMS is continuously improving quality, environmental and occupational, health and safety performance, in compliance with internationally recognized standards.
The Integrated Management System allows even greater transparency, through which employees are aware of all activities and the standardized processes have a supportive environment for their review and improvement, among other benefits.

The System’s policy guides the Organization’s actions regarding management systems. It is currently approved as follows:

“Portonave S/A – Terminais Portuários de Navegantes, a container port operator and Iceport Terminal Frigorífico de Navegantes S/A, a frozen cargo storage facility, taking into account the scope of their Integrated Management System, direct their efforts toward meeting the following guidelines:
