In Brazil, the Agência Nacional de Transportes Aquaviários (“National Waterway Transportation Agency”, or ANTAQ) has announced five new port terminals will be put out to tender in July and September.

Between them, they will require investment of $167m as part of the state investment programme.

On July 27, two areas will become available in the Port of Paranaguá and a third at the Port of Itaqui, with investment required of $101m.

At the former, one 18-year concession will be aimed at general cargo, specifically paper and pulp, while a second encompasses the handling of finished vehicles, over a 20-year period.

At Itaqui, a 25-year concession will be offered for a terminal that will handle paper and pulp.

Then, on September 28, a public terminal for the movement and storage of agribulk, especially woodchip, will be offered at the Port of Santana, in the northern state of Amapá.

At the same time, a second terminal specialising in bulk liquids will be put out to tender at the Port of Santos, in São Paulo.

Both will be for a period of 25 years and require a combined total investment of $66m.

Concurrently, the director general of ANTAQ, Mário Povia, has stressed the need for regulatory stability as a means of incentivising investment in the ports sector.
