Brazil has competitive advantages in the production and commercialization of agricultural products and stands out as one of the largest players in the world market. Brasil exported about 83 million tons of grains in 2015/2016, especially the various forms of soybeans and corn.
In order for Brazil to continue to grow as an agricultural exporter major player, many investments in the logistics infrastructure are necessary to achieve more efficiency and competitiveness. Porto Central is a new competitive and efficient alternative for export and import of various types of agricultural commodities, especially for the Midwest region of Brazil, including the States of Minas Gerais, Goiás and Mato Grosso.
The port will be capable to handle large agricultural volumes by truck through the roadways that already give access to the port and by future railways, through the construction of the railways EF-118 (Vitória – Rio de Janeiro, passing at Porto Central) and EF-354 (Midwest – Port– Central).
