The load of 3 ktons was mined in Miraí, in Minas Gerais State, and will be exported to China. This load marked the first operation at T-MULT (the enterprise’s Multicargo Terminal).
According to Prumo’s Regulations and Sustainability Director Eduardo Xavier, the operationalization of the new terminal employed local laborers, who were trained by Prumo in partnership with the São João da Barra City Hall.
“Professionals who took the course showed a very good performance and had a key role in this first operation. The City Hall’s sensibility in opening doors for the locals facilitates our work. With professional qualification courses, locals have higher chances of working at Açu Port,” he said.
Importantly, this first operation of T-MULT was a test, when operational timetables and equipment were adjusted.
Mayor Neco regards this as a historic moment for the town, especially because it valued local workers.
“We are very proud to participate in this unique moment for our town. I am glad to know that local people are included in this achievement. We emphasize how important it is to continue to train and use local laborers at Açu Port,” he noted.
