The mayor of Santos has partially blamed the centralisation of port management for the excessive number of bottlenecks at the Port of Santos. Paulo Alexandre Barbosa has therefore again asked for decision-making at the port to be decentralised.

It is Mr Barbosa’s belief that the best ports in the world thrive because of the decentralised nature of their administration, which alows input from the various municipalities involved in port operations. This is the model he would like to see adopted at Santos.

He highlighted a $250m project dating back to 2013 that aimed to solve the problem of access at the port by dividing responsibilities for it between the state and local government. According to the mayor, the resulting delay in executing the plan was down to this mismatch between the two authorities involved.
