The Terminal

Porto Itapoá began operations in June 2011 – one of the fastest and most efficient in Latin America and one of the largest and most important in the country for moving containerized cargo. Privately run, the Terminal boasts infrastructure able to handle 1.2 million TEUs per year and is nearing the final phase of its expansion project, which will increase its capacity to 2 million TEUs per year.

Located on the north coast of Santa Catarina, Porto Itapoá is positioned among the most productive regions in Brazil, with importers and exporters from the most diverse business segments. In addition to its strategic location, the Terminal boasts the Baia da Babitonga, providing safety and facility for berthing vessels.

With its calm and deep waters, the bay is ideal for receiving large-scale vessels – an increasingly adopted trend in global shipping. Opening as one of the most modern terminals in the world, Porto Itapoá joins the Itapoá municipality as a greenfield project, situated far from the city's urban perimeter with direct connection to BR-101. Additionally, it possesses a 12-million m2 area, defined by the Municipal Planning Director for receiving complementary enterprises.
