Itajai celebrates 1 millionth teu in final days of 2012

Itajai celebrates 1 millionth teu in final days of 2012

According to the port authority, the more than 1m teu handled represents not only the achievement of a goal but demonstrates to the world that a small facility located at the mouth of a river and with just 2,000 m of quay length, can be as efficient and productive as many larger facilities. In fact, Itajai now ranks second among Brazils container ports and is among the top ten ports in Latin America that have achieved a throughput in excess of 1m teu annually.

When the current board took over the management of the Port Authority in 2009, teu throughput was a mere 596,000 teu and it is rightly proud of the fact that volumes have doubled in the space of just three years.
