In 1935, Paranaguá inaugurated the Port Dom Pedro II, which changed the economic profile of the region and is considered the second biggest in export volume and the first in grain movement of Latin America. The biggest grain exporting port of Latin America began its history in the old wharf of Paranaguá, in 1872, as a private business. In 1917, the Government of Parana took on the administration of the Port of Paranaguá, which received improvements that made possible its ascension to the position of biggest port of southern Brazil.

Nowadays, the Port of Paranaguá is one of the world's most important seatrade centers. Paranagua brings together a stratecial position and one of the best port infrastructures of Latin America. Amont the cargos that pass through the Port of Paranaguá, we have: soybean, soybean meal, corn, salt, sugar, fertilizers, refrigerated containers, oil products, alcohol and vehicles.

The expectance is that the Ports of Paraná end the year of 2013 with a movement of 43 million tons, beating the historic record of 2011. From January to May of 2013, 9 million of tons of grains have been exported through the Port of Paranaguá, which represents an increase of 12% than the volume registered in 2012.

The "Online Cargo" system that keeps receiving periodic improvements, assured the reception of cargoes without the congestion of the roads accessing the Port. The Ports Management System of Parana will be extended to other areas and processes with the aim of being a national reference, not only in safety, but also in the port's activity. This reference begins in the area of safety, with the full training of the people involved in the process and control of the access and circulation. Respecting the norms of the "Plan of Public and Port Safety" and the certificate already achieved by the Ports of Paraná: The ISPS CODE.

The Port of Paranaguá has already worked 24 hours a day for more than five decades, and it started to have the services of national authorities also working non-stop to conform the program of the Port's Authority of the State of Paraná.

TCP, as is known this Port, has 564 m of quays with two docking berths dedicated to full container ships, it has also a 320.000 square meters container yard, as well as an area of 12.000 square meters for loading and unloading of containers. The port has also structure to house the authorities of the National Customs and Agricultural Ministry.

This is one of the only Brazilian terminals with multimodal transport integration and the availability of a railway dedicated to bring containers into the terminal in a daily basis.

A 315 m quays enlargement is being planned, what may afford an increase in the current movement capacity from 1.200.000 TEUs/year to, aprox., 1.500.000 TEU's/year; and will make available a 879 m docking line that will permit the operation of three container ships, simultaneously, establishing TCP as one of the biggest terminals of South America.
