Pecém Port will close 2019 with six regular cabotage lines – the second largest number of lines between Brazilian ports, behind only the centenary Port of Santos. “Three, four years ago we had a productivity of 28 containers / hour. At that time we did not serve the market satisfactorily. So we prepared, mainly, with the construction of cradles 7 and 8 and the purchase of new equipment. Today our productivity averages 65 containers / hour with a peak of 110 containers / hour. It is a very expressive movement within the national market and that explains this amount of lines ”, says Waldir Sampaio, Executive Director of Operations of Pecém Industrial and Port Complex. The lines are operated by Aliança (4), Log-In (1) and Mercosul Line (1). Cabotage directly contributed to the growth of Pecém Port in 2019. In October, five ships docked at the pier of the Ceará port terminal – the largest number of cargo vessels moored in a single month since the equipment was inaugurated in March 2002. The result of the coming of the boats directly influenced the movement of loads. Also in October 2019, 1,927,493 tons were handled – another historical record.
