The government wants to reduce costs and increase the competitiveness of Brazilian ports through the Project “Analysis of time intervals for process procedures and cargo handling in the export and import by sea”, in execution at the ports of Itajaí and Navegantes (SC). The project is an initiative of the Procomex Alliance, in partnership with the Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services (MDIC), Unesco and the Federal Revenue Service. Subsequently, proposals should be made to improve import and export processes in the country. In Itajaí, Allog International Tranport is one of the companies invited to participate in the study.
According to the executive coordinator of the Procomex Alliance Institute, John Mein, after the process improvements with the introduction of the Siscomex Portal, the next opportunities to increase the competitiveness of Brazilian products are to improve processes at the border points.
In this first moment, the project is analyzing the times of export and import in the local terminals with a focus on the Brazilian ports. In Itajaí and Navegantes the current export and import flows of container cargoes are being worked on. In these, several subprocesses, such as the return of timber packaging with occurrences and the advance despatch in the export are being approached.
With the crossing of information, the Procomex Institute will prepare a report that will be delivered to Unesco and the federal agencies involved in the work. The content will also be sent to the companies involved in the study according to their participation. “The involvement of industry players helps to make the debate more tangible about what’s really happening in the market,” explains Allog’s chief operating officer, Rodrigo Hauck.
