Located in Navegantes, a city on the northern coast of Santa Catarina, Portonave S/A – Terminais Portuários de Navegantes maintained, throughout 2015, its leadership position in container handling in the state. The Company, which launched its operations in October 2007, is engaged in the distribution of goods produced in Brazil’s South, Southeast and Midwest as well as in other countries in South America, and in the receipt of cargo from around the world.
On August 31, 2015, Portonave began operating on an area of 400,000 square meters after completing an expansion project launched the previous year.

With the inauguration of the expansion project, in which R$120 million was invested, Portonave became the second-largest port in the country’s South in terms of container operating area.
