Brazil - Recife

One of the fastest growing ports in Brazil, the unique geographical location of Recife Port gives it prime access to a large consumer market, making it an ideal hub for businesses. With a long history of handling general cargo, it is the only terminal in the region that has its own dedicated equipment, staffed by a team of world class professionals. In order to fuel its growth and expansion, Gulftainer has installed new equipment at the Port which will speed up the handling of both general and containerized cargo. 

Recife has several strategic advantages including a sheltered harbor, access to a population market of 12 million people with a 300 KM radius, road and rail network, upcoming industrial zones around the port, and an extensive investment and expansion plan by the port authority. It provides an alternate gateway to the fast growing North East region (Brazil) market.
