The APL Paris is the largest ever vessel to call to the East Coast of South America, larger than the Eiffel Tower, but only called at the Port of Itajai.
The Itaji Port Complex, which includes AP Moeller Terminal Itajai on the right bank and Portonave, owned by MSC, on the left bank, has spent millions of dollars on capital and maintenance dredging and also on a major expansion of its Turning Basin, which previously allowed only ships with a maximum length of 303 metres but can now go to 347 metres.
