In January and February 2024, the ports of Antonina and Paranaguá saw a throughput of 730,136 tonnes of cabotage cargo, marking a 51.11% increase compared to the same period in 2023, when 483,173 tons were handled.

“Cabotage is a logistical alternative to reduce transportation costs and alleviate road traffic. That’s why we’re fostering cabotage in the ports of Paranaguá and Antonina, offering rates with discounts of up to 50% compared to other tariffs,” emphasized Luiz Fernando Garcia, the CEO of Portos do Paraná. Another advantage of this mode of transport is its versatility, allowing the transportation of various types of goods.

The discounts mentioned by the CEO apply to Waterway Access Infrastructure tariffs, Docking Infrastructure, and Land Infrastructure, depending on the cargo and vessel type, among other factors.

In 2023, 13 maritime agencies utilized cabotage for cargo transportation in Paraná ports. A total of 2.9 million tons of cargo were transported, with the top three commodities being fuel oil with 995 thousand tons (33%), gasoline with 822 thousand tons (27%), and diesel oil with 737 thousand tons (25%).
