The Port of Santos received a ship with 72,000 tons of bulk ammonium sulfate, the largest cargo of fertilizers in the country’s history. The information comes from the Orion Group – the agency responsible for the port terminal’s call.

The vessel Panamaz Breeze departed from the ports of Yantai and Qinhuangdao in China and is moored at Guarujá Maritime Terminal (Termag). “The destination of more than 90% of the cargo (91.5%) is the municipality of Rondonópolis (MT)” says the note. “The rest goes to Cubatão, on the coast itself, and to the city of Itapetininga, in the interior of the state.”

In order to transport everything by truck, approximately 1,270 b-trains would be required, each about 20 meters long. If lined up while maintaining a minimum safe distance for movement, they would form a convoy of more than 50 km. The cargo, however, will be moved by rail.

The unloading of the ship should take six days.
