The terminal service is adding rail logistics to its operations with the long-term lease of Floriano Intermodal Terminal in Barra Mansa, Rio de Janeiro.
ICTSI formed IRB Logistica to take over the terminal's operations from Multitex Logistica starting July 1.
'We are excited for IRB Log??stica to commence operations and look forward to coordinating closely with our sister company to improve synergy in the regional supply chain. While ICTSI Rio's and IRB Log??stica's operations are independent from one another, we share the common goal of driving economic growth in the region by providing more efficient, seamless, and value-added solutions across the entire logistics chain,' said ICTSI Rio CEO Roberto Lopes.
The port is located in an industrial cluster 150 kilometres away from the Port of Rio de Janeiro, and will primarily handle containerised cargo and steel products.
The port is 100 per cent solar-powered and operates a fleet of cargo handling equipment that runs on electricity.
