Port of Açu, developed and operated by Prumo Logística, will make presence at Intermodal South America 2018. The exhibition will take place from March 12 to 15 at São Paulo Expo (SP). Intermodal is the largest logistics, cargo transportation and foreign trade event in Latin America.
At booth 7-160 (Pavilion B), visitors will get know details of Port of Açu, the largest port-industry complex in Brazil. Already in operation, Port of Açu offers an unique port and industrial solution for Brazil. In 2017 the Port of Açu received a total of 2,404 vessels, 155% more than the previous year.
Through interactive and audiovisual tools, visitors will be able to navigate through all areas of Açu and understand the operations performed. In addition, visitors will also get to know the differentials of the complex, such as its depth, which makes it possible to moor large vessels; retro-area available for the installation of industries; among others.

The main highlight of the booth is the Multicargo Terminal (T-MULT), which has been operating since 2016 and which handlescoke, bauxite, steel coal, project cargo and general cargo. In addition, it is authorized to operate any type of solid and liquid bulk, containers and vehicles. Representing a new alternative to the Southeast of Brazil, T-MULT has 160 thousand m² of bonded area.
The Terminal has 14.5 meters of depth, and it is currently approved to receive vessels with draft of up to 13.1 meters. The Terminal also has 500 meters of wharf, being 340 meters operational, and annual capacity for handling solid bulk and general cargo of approximately 4 million tons. In addition to pet coke, coal and bauxite shipments, the terminal handled 585 thousand tons of bulk cargo: ten times more than in 2016.
In 2017, T-MULT started offering Integrated Logistics solutions for solid bulk (Port / Storage / Transportation). This type of operation moved, in its first year, more than 300 thousand tons. In addition to the door-to-door solutions for import and export, the terminal also carries out multimodal operations, using a transhipment terminal installed only 300 km from the port.
With access to the main Brazilian highways, and specialized in solid bulk transportation by road, T-MULT currently carries out integrated import and export operations in the states of Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul.
Another differential of the Açu Port Complex is the development of an Export Processing Zone (EPZ), a free trade area created at the end of 2017 and destined to set up companies with 80% of its export production. Installed in the backyard of the port, among the industries that can benefit from the installation of the EPZ, are the processing of ornamental stones and coffee.
