ICTSI Rio Brasil 1 operates the Container Terminal 1 at the Port of Rio de Janeiro and serves the import, export, and industrial oil and gas hubs in the largest economic region of Brazil.
ICTSI Rio has formed a new company – IRB Logistica to take over the operations of the terminal from Multitex Logistica starting on 1 July 2021.
IRB LogIstica will offer cargo handling, transport, and storage services to the economic, industrial, and production centres in Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, and São Paulo.
“We are excited for IRB Logistica to commence operations and look forward to coordinating closely with our sister company to improve synergy in the regional supply chain. While ICTSI Rio’s and IRB Logistica’s operations are independent from one another, we share the common goal of driving economic growth in the region by providing more efficient, seamless, and value-added solutions across the entire logistics chain,” said Roberto Lopes, ICTSI Rio CEO.
Located in an industrial cluster some 150 km away from the Port of Rio de Janeiro, the intermodal terminal mainly handles containerised cargo and steel products, which are better suited for rail transport, for industries in the South Rio de Janeiro region. It can accommodate up to 70 train wagons and features a yard for storage and container stuffing, as well as a covered area for storage of finished products.
The 3.4-hectare port is 100% solar-powered and operates a fleet of cargo handling equipment that runs on electricity – operational aspects that align perfectly with the sustainability strategy of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. across its global portfolio.
