February 25, 2016 - Portocel reaches mark of 90 million tons of pulp

Portocel, a port terminal specializing in forestry products and jointly operated by Fibria (51%) and Cenibra (49%), reached in January the mark of 90 million tons of pulp shipped during its more than 30 years of operations. The milestone was reached on January 27th with the shipment of 51,500 tons of Fibria pulp in the ship MV Brassiana, which left for Port Arthur and Mobile, both in the United States.

Located in Barra do Riacho, in the city of Aracruz in Espírito Santo, Portocel is the world’s most efficient port in pulp handling. The terminal’s average productivity is 24,000 tons per day of pulp per ship. To get an idea of the significance of this number, the ports of Baltimore (USA) and Flushing (the Netherlands), which are among the best in the world, handle 16,000 tons and 18,000 tons of pulp, respectively, per day.

Besides shipping all the pulp produced by Fibria in Espírito Santo, by Cenibra in Minas Gerais and by Veracel in Bahia, Portocel also handles pulp produced by other companies in the sector. The terminal accounts for around 60% of all the pulp exported by Brazil and offers the lowest operating cost in Brazil, according to Patricia Dutra Lascosque, managing director of Portocel.

According to Ms. Lascosque, thanks to the culture of high performance at the company, combined with the commitment of teams, as well as the boom in the sector, pulp handling volume is increasingly reaching new heights. “We reach the mark of 10 million tons shipped every one year and seven months,” she pointed out.
