On the move
Operations started in 2014. The Port of Açu already handles solid and liquid bulk, general cargo, iron ore and oil.

We rely on a large partner base, including the Port of Antwerp, which brings to the Port of Açu expertise and knowledge in operations and development of a port-industry complex.

Greater safety: only port in Brazil licensed to operate a Vessel Traffic Service (VTS).

100% privately-owned
Developed under an efficient, low-cost model.
