“The sugar shipment terminal is a long-standing dream of the industry, reducing the current port export costs, will provide more competitiveness to the product.”
Paulo Meneguetti President of PASA
Over the years, with the growth of state production and the investments made by the mills, important markets have been conquered.
The reduction in the costs of port shipments made through the Pasa port complex allowed a greater international competitiveness of the product of Paraná and the beginning of a new stage in the history of the sugar and alcohol sector of Paraná, a state that until the beginning of the 1990s had practically no expression as a producer and exporter of sugar.
In 2005, the second warehouse was built, bringing to 174,000 tons the terminal’s static capacity in Paranaguá, providing storage of products from associated plants and business partners, combined with complete logistics, making Paraná a privileged state in production and outflow of sugar.
