Transport and Logistics in Brazil, Market Focus

by Bolloré Logistics Brazil

 Brazil is Latin America’s largest economy and the world’s eighth-largest economy. As a member of a group of five emerging global economies called the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) countries, Brazil is still expanding its presence in the world markets thanks to its economic reforms giving the country’s international recognition and influence.

 

Blessed with abundant natural resources, the leading export goods are transport equipment, soybeans, sugar, iron ore, crude petroleum, coffee, footwear, poultry meat, and automobiles. Brazil has been undergoing a recession since 2014, before which it was the sixth largest economy in the world. The country’s exports have been decreasing in key markets such as China.

Present in Brazil since 1974, Bolloré Logistics has, along the years, conquered a reputation of a competent, ethical and cost efficient provider of logistics services. Doing business with large national and multi-national companies in the country, Bolloré Logistics has developed a respectful portfolio of customers throughout Brazil.

Headquartered in São Paulo, Bolloré Logistics Brazil offers a much diversified range of services delivered by our own high qualified staff. With over 70 employees, Bolloré Logistics is also present on eight other sites across the country, namely in Campinas, Curitiba, Guarulhos, Resende, Rio de Janeiro, Santos and Viracopos, to successfully meet all clients’ requests, coming from sectors such as aerospace & defense, automotive, healthcare, high tech, industrial projects, oil & gas and perfumes & cosmetics.

Additionally to the traditional freight forwarding operations (air and ocean), Bolloré Logistics Brazil is also a provider of customs brokerage and warehouse management services. In both 2016 and 2017, Bolloré Logistics was awarded at the Vencedores do Prêmio Infraero de Eficiência Logística awards at the Curitiba / São José dos Pinhais International Airport - Afonso Pena (PR), for Most Efficient Cargo Agent and Customs Broker in the Logistics Chain – in the High Tech segment.
