Profile


The history of the port of São Francisco do Sul is intertwined with the history of the city, since the beginning of the 20th century, receiving heavy investments which have resulted in the current statistics. The Port of São Francisco is today the fifth largest Brazilian port in terms of container movement, and it stands out for its excellent location halfway between São Paulo and Buenos Aires, the two largest centers of production and consumption within Mercosul.

Access to it is also quite easy.

BR-280 provides highway access to Joinville, the largest city in the state of Santa Catarina, and from there to the rest of the country and to Mercosul. Rail convoys enter and leave the port via railway 485, which links São Francisco do Sul to the city of Mafra. In Mafra, a new rail network connects with São Paulo, the largest city in country, and with Porto Alegre, the largest city in the southern region. Two airports are located near the port: the airport of Joinville, 60 kilometers away, and the airport of Navegantes, 100 kilometers away.

The combination of its optimal geographic location and the fact that it has lowest tariffs in Brazil has caused the Port of São Francisco to experience vigorous and constant growth. Container movement has tripled, breakbulk cargo movement has doubled, and the movement of bulk solids has increased by 50%. A good indicator of the efficiency of the Port of São Francisco is the fact that it has the lowest cargo damage index in the country and record container movement time. While the national average for movement is 8-10 light movement per hour, the Port of São Francisco achieves 23.
