Port operator ICTSI Rio Brasil and logistics company Tora Group offer a new service for consolidated import cargoes bound for Betim in Minas Gerais, Brazil
The service handles different cargo types ranging from manufactured products to raw materials for transport under customs transit declaration to Tora’s Customs Industrial Logistics Center in Betim
International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) Brazilian subsidiary, ICTSI Rio Brasil, and Tora Group, one of the largest logistics solutions providers in Brazil, have launched a new service for consolidated import cargoes bound for Betim, a city in the state of Minas Gerais in southeastern Brazil.
Designed to cater to all industry segments, the service handles different cargo types ranging from manufactured products to raw materials for transport under customs transit declaration to Tora’s Customs Industrial Logistics Center in Betim.
“Tora and ICTSI offer solidity to the cargo transport market, always innovating to meet customer needs. With integrated management, the service is carried out through multimodal transport, with the railroad as a safer modal and with a major direct impact on CO2 reduction,” ICTSI Rio commercial manager André Lemos Tavares said in a statement.
ICTSI Rio, which operates the Container Terminal 1 at the Port of Rio de Janeiro, receives the cargo and prepares it for transshipment in 40-foot containers. Tora then picks up the containers for transport to the dry port in Betim via road and rail.
ICTSI Rio’s partnership with the Tora Group aims to create alternatives and new services that will improve synergy and reduce cost across the entire logistics chain for Brazil’s foreign trade.
The multimodal service has improved ICTSI Rio’s partnership with the non-vessel operating common carriers and freight forwarding operators in Rio, and allowed Tora to expand its operations in integrated logistics and multimodality.
