Multipurpose ships

The survey carried out by Datamar also pointed out that despite the high value of freight, 2021 saw an increase in the number of containers transported by multipurpose ships in Brazil as an attempt to circumvent the logistical problems that persisted throughout the year.

These ships handled 10,367 TEUS in 2021, compared to 830 in 2020 (12 times higher) and only 219 in 2019. Check below a comparison of these volumes month by month:
