APM Terminals Pecém achieves 10% container volume growth

APM Terminals Pecém has reported a two-digit growth for the second consecutive year, registering close to 430,000 TEU in 2021.

The figures show a growth of 10% compared to the 2020 movements, mainly resulting from refrigerated cargo exports, which grew approximately 21% compared to 2020 figures.

Cabotage moves in the terminal grew by 6%, with more than 350,000 TEU handled in Pecém throughout the year, while refrigerated cargo shipments boosted this strong growth, resulting in 47.7% above 2020 levels.

Currently, the Port of Pecém offers six cabotage lines connecting the south of Brazil to the northeast and Manaus, thus being a strategic port for handling cabotage cargo and long haul.

In terms of long haul shipments, APM Terminals Pecém achieved a 31% growth compared to 2020, registering more than 75,000 TEU moved in the year. These loads accounted for 18% of the terminal's total moves. Much of this is due to the great result of full load exports, which grew by 20%.
