TO OFFER COMPREHENSIVE FREIGHT AND CUSTOMS CLEARANCE SERVICES FOR EUROPEAN AND BRAZILIAN BUSINESSES
This is a general information about the shipping environment in Brazil prepared by Shipping Brazil company. The Brazilian federal government started a ship building programme in the 1960s, as the number of ships increased the service became more reliable and ships more frequent. Now more high value goods are carried by the coastal shipping service.
Brazil has an extensive river system. No less than 31,000 miles are navigable, and provide an important means of transport, especially in the north of the country.
Brazil is a huge country, and Brazil shipping has become increasingly important in transporting goods not only worldwide but also within the country.
Three quarters of Brazil’s ships take part in the coastal trade, including ocean going vessels. Specialised bulk terminals have been upgraded. The busiest port is Santos, close to Sao Paulo. Other important ports include Rio de Janeiro, Paranaguá, Salvador, and Recife. While these were notorious for their high prices and poor efficiency, privatization has much improved the facilities and operating of Brazil’s ports.
