Rio de Janeiro: more intermodal services
ICTSI Rio has created a new company IRB Logística, to run logistics operations under the long-term lease of Floriano Intermodal Terminal in Barra Mansa, Rio de Janeiro. IRB Logística will take over the terminal operations from Multitex Logistica, starting on 1 July 2021.
The terminal can accommodate up to 70 train wagons and features a yard for storage and container stuffing, as well as a covered area for the storage of finished products. IRB Logística will provide sustainable cargo handling, transport, and storage services for the major economic centres Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, and São Paulo.
“ICTSI Rio’s and IRB Logística’s operations will be independent from one another. Yet, we share the common goal of driving economic growth in the region by providing more efficient solutions across the entire logistics chain,” said Roberto Lopes, ICTSI Rio chief executive officer.
Located in an industrial cluster some 150 km away from the Port of Rio de Janeiro, the intermodal terminal mainly handles containerised cargo and steel products for industries in the South Fluminense region. (sh)
