With the sharp growth of Brazilian rice in the international trade, logistics system has been vital to make rice even more profitable, says Federarroz. One of the great achievements of rice production was the implementation of the Rice Logistics Terminal (TLA) in the Port of Rio Grande, signed at the Opening of the Rice Harvest in 2020. According to the superintendent of Portos RS, Fernando Estima, through the logistics distribution system, agribusiness has been sustaining the economic balance in Rio Grande do Sul. “This means all production, harvesting and storage. Terminals have improved the logistics system with the first rice logistics terminal made up in 2020. This pioneering terminal has modern conveyor belts and shiploader. It is on a pier that was recently dredged. It is undoubtedly the first rice logistics terminal with technology made via private partnership through concession”, he highlights.
