International Container Terminal Services’s Brazilian subsidiary ICTSI Rio Brasil and the Tora Group have launched a new service for consolidated import cargos bound for Betim in Minas Gerais.

Designed to cater to all industry segments, the service handles different cargo types ranging from manufactured products to raw materials for transport under customs transit declaration to Tora’s Customs Industrial Logistics Centre (CLIA) in Betim. 

ICTSI Rio, which operates the Container Terminal 1 at the Port of Rio de Janeiro, receives the cargo and prepares them for transhipment in 40-foot containers. Tora then picks up the containers for transport to the dry port in Betim via road and rail.

ICTSI Rio’s partnership with the Tora Group aims to create alternatives as well as new services that would improve synergy, optimization, and cost reduction across the entire logistics chain for Brazil’s foreign trade. The multimodal service has paved the way for ICTSI Rio’s improved partnership with the non-vessel operating common carriers and freight forwarding operators in Rio, and allowed Tora to expand its operations in integrated logistics and multimodality.

“Tora and ICTSI offer solidity to the cargo transport market, always innovating to meet customer needs. With integrated management, the service is carried out through multimodal transport, with the railroad as a safer modal and with a major direct impact on CO2 reduction,” said André Lemos Tavares, ICTSI Rio Commercial Manager.
