The Port of Paranaguá in the state of Paraná is a deep water port 202 nautical miles south of Santos, which serves as a major export load center for agricultural products from southern Brazil such as soybeans, poultry, and soybean meal. Paranaguá is Brazil’s third-busiest container port, after Santos and the Itajaí/Portonave complex, handling 757,000 TEUs in 2014. The port is also a major hub of automobiles, fertilizer, lumber, paper, petroleum products, salt, and sugar transportation.  In February 2016 APM Terminals acquired Grup TCB’s minority share in Terminal de Contêineres de Paranaguá, which offers 1,000 meters of quay and a 12-meter depth, with an annual container capacity of 800,000 TEUs.
